BDK is considered less dangerous than its older counterparts as they focus more on lower-level crimes such as phone robberies.

However, police have raised concerns that BDK is becoming increasingly violent.

A number of members have been linked to the brutal fight in St Albans last week, which left a man in hospital, according to police.

Wooden bats and chairs were used in the violent clash on Christmas Eve. 

The youths are also believed to be involved in a spate of robberies and assaults along the St Kilda foreshore over the past few months.

The gang has its own Snapchat account, which detectives have been keeping a close eye on.

BDK is now the focus for a group of detectives trying to stamp out thuggery. 

The group of African youths was initially only four or five in number, but that quickly swelled

In court, police raised concerns over the teenagers reoffending if he were released, they requested strict bail conditions.

‘I’m concerned that if he is released he will join up with those other members of BDK and engage in (another) affray at (Alfrieda St),’ a detective said.

The teen was granted bail but has been banned from entering St Albans under his bail conditions.
