Two held in 'Islamic patrol' probe
clear

Interesting that the Belfast Telegraph, the Northern Echo and (to their credit, at last) Pink News have news of these arrests before any of the London papers, and not long after the London papers finally take an interest in the Muslim vigilantes.

Two men have been arrested by police investigating reports a gang claiming to be Islamic vigilantes have been confronting people in the street demanding they throw away alcohol and cover their bare skin. It has been reported that another video shows the group shouting homophobic abuse at a man and tell him "get out of here you fag... don't stay around here any more".

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Officers investigating a series of incidents that took place over the course of the weekend of 12/13 January in east London, whereby a small group of individuals were seen to approach and harass members of the public at various locations, have arrested two men. Videos of the incidents were uploaded onto YouTube."

A 22-year-old man was arrested in Acton, west London on Sunday, and a 19-year-old man was arrested on Monday after going to an east London police station.

The pair were arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and public order offences and were bailed to return to an east London police station in February and March pending further inquiries.
