A video circulating on social media shows young men involved in the violent attacks, and some were armed with cane knives and other harmful equipment.

It is believed that youth from a nearby community pelted properties with stones which sparked a violent response from another group of young men.

The video also shows residents who were waiting for public transport fleeing from the nearby bus stop, seeking safety at nearby buildings.

Further Police investigation continues.
