Two men have been seriously injured in an incident in Hyndland this evening.

Social media footage captured scenes at Devonshire Gardens at around 5.50pm on Tuesday.

One video showed a struggle with several people around a silver Mercedes car that was parked in the lane.

One male is seen to be dragged from the driver’s side of the vehicle.

The person is forced to the ground where it appears he is restrained by two other people.

The video also appears to show other people restraining someone else who appears to be in or behind the car.

The second person is not visible on the video.

It is not clear who the people are who grapple with whoever was in the car.

The two-minute video shows passersby giving assistance to the men who are restraining the people from the car.
