Caught on CCTV: Gang of thugs caught ‘kidnapping’ man from a bar in Bristol


CCTV footage shows the yobs dragging the man outside and into a car before driving off


CCTV footage has been released showing the terrifying moment a gang of thugs in a Bristol bar kidnap a man by dragging him out across the floor.

The victim, aged 22, was believed to have been assaulted once outside and then thrown into a car and driven around the city.

The CCTV footage shows the victim sitting with three other men at a table. Some more people can be seen and the conversation looks as though it’s getting a bit heated, so the victim gets up ready to leave.

A member of the gang grabs the victim as he walks away and he tries to wrestle free. Other members of the gang join in to restrain him before pulling him to the floor and dragging him towards the door by his arms.

The victim is seen on the CCTV footage being thrown onto the pavement outside by the gang of thugs. The 22-year-old is allegedly assaulted before being thrown into a waiting car.

Other people follow the trouble outside but no one steps in to help the victim.

The 22-year-old later manages to escape from the gang and needed treatment at hospital for facial injuries sustained as a result of the attack.

The incident happened at the Blue Lagoon bar, in Gloucester Road, Bristol, at around 10.20pm on Thursday, December 15 last year.

DCI Duncan Wood said: “As part of our investigation we’re releasing CCTV footage from inside the Blue Lagoon, in the hope the public can help us identify the men pictured.”

Two men, aged 28 and 32 have since been arrested in connection with the assault and have been released on bail until February 17, 2017.

Anyone who might be able to help the police with their investigation is asked to contact Avon and Somerset Police on 101.
