Avon and Somerset police have arrested two men with regard to the horrific racist attack on “K-Dogg”, an NHS worker and keen musician in Bristol recently.
Two 18 year old men were arrested this morning on suspicion of attempted murder and are now in Police custody.
The vehicle used in the attack that left the young NHS worker with a broken leg, nose and cheekbone, is undergoing a full forensic check to gather more evidence.
In a statement Superintendent Andy Bennett said: “We appreciate this incident has caused a significant amount of concern but we’d like to stress there is no intelligence or information to indicate there’s a further risk to the public. If anyone does have any concerns or worries then I would urge them to speak to officers within their local neighbourhood policing team who will be happy to answer any questions they can.”
“I know the senior detective overseeing the investigation has spoken personally with the victim to provide as much reassurance as she can and a dedicated contact officer continues to update him about the progress of the investigation. We also continue to work with community leaders, the local authority and SARI to provide further reassurance to the wider community.”
“I’d like to thank the many members of the public who have shown their support either by providing us with information or making gestures of solidarity with the victim. Bristol is a wonderful city full of diverse communities and I continue to be heartened by its reactions to incidents such as this.”
