New images have emerged of a group of thugs claiming to be from a notorious Sydney gang who allegedly filmed themselves threatening African-Australian boys with a hammer.
It comes after shocking footage surfaced on social media of four males claiming to be from the gang Inner West tormenting the six youths as they kneeled on the ground on a railway station overpass in western Sydney.
A man filming the incident walks around the group, forcing the boys to make the Inner West gang sign and punching those who refused.
The hammer-wielding man then forces the boys to kiss his shoes, with other members saying: ‘Hurry up! Do it!’
NSW Police has since released CCTV images of the incident, which occurred at Mount Druitt train station on June 13.
Police were told the youths were walking on a footbridge around 8pm when they were confronted by a number of males.
‘Police have been told one of the men threatened them with a hammer and demanded their phones and a bag before fleeing,’ a statement read.
‘No one was injured during the incident.’
Mount Druitt Police attended the scene and commenced an investigation, which is ongoing.
Those involved have only been described as being of Pacific Islander/Maori appearance.
Polce urge anyone with information to or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Amnesty International Youth Taskforce member Shaneel Lal posted the video to Instagram on Wednesday, saying it was previously posted elsewhere.
‘The video shows Pacific men forcing young Black boys to kiss their shoes/the ground, threatening them with a hammer and using the ‘n’ word,’ a post content warning read.
‘There is speculation that this is gang affiliated and therefore not racist. The use of the ”n word” is racist.’
Mr Lal said the video was not meant to be an attack on Pacific Islanders but rather to point out ‘we have been racist black people’.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Mr Lal about the origins of the clip, which was reportedly posted elsewhere on Monday.
One brutal moment of the video came when the man filming the video threatened the boys with violence to make the Inner West gang sign
‘Pull up the Inner West sign, you know the sign, you know it. I know you do, you f***ing pulled it up before, I’ll slap you,’ he said to one of the boys.
The boy complied and the filming man moved onto another, who said he didn’t know how to do the sign.

‘Don’t ask stupid questions! You know how to do it, look at the camera and do it and say Inner West on top.
‘Look at the camera bro, before I f***ing punch your chin.’
He also made a third boy do the sign but when he didn’t do it ‘properly’, the man hit him in the head.
The most distressing moment of the video comes when a man in a black Adidas tracksuit threatens the visibly-distressed boys with a hammer.
‘Kiss my shoes,’ he shouted at the boys, who were reluctant to do so, with some of them muttering ‘no’.
Two boys were filmed being forced to kiss his shoes with the man’s hand wrapped around their necks.

At the end of the video, the tracksuit-wearing man took a cross body bag from one of the boys.
‘Oi, you really let him take your s**t?’ the man filming the video taunted the boy.
The video later cuts off with the men continuing to harass the boys.
The group appears to be from the western Sydney gang Inner West, best known for their rivalry with another gang ‘Greater Western Sydney’.
The Greater Western Sydney is also associated with drill music rap group OneFour.
A case recently heard the gangs appeared to feel they had some sort of control over territory in the city.
