Two men were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following a racist attack on an NHS employee.

The victim, a 21-year-old musician known as K or K-Dogg, was struck by a car on his way to the bus stop from work at Bristol Southmead Hospital on 22 July.

He suffered serious injuries, including a broken leg, nose and cheekbone.

Two 18-year-olds were arrested Saturday morning and are in custody.

Police said the incident was being treated as racially aggravated due to racist language used by car occupants.

The car involved in the incident has been seized and a full forensic examination is underway, Avon and Somerset Police said.

Superintendent Andy Bennett said he wanted to point out that there is no information indicating that there is an additional risk to the public.

“If anyone has any concerns or concerns I urge them to speak to officers from their local neighborhood police team who will be happy to answer any questions they can,” he added. .

The singer’s fundraising page was created by a friend to help K-Dogg recover from his injuries.

Bristol group Massive Attack posted on Facebook saying they had donated money to help K-Dogg and his family recover from this “horrific attack”.

Superintendent Bennett said he wanted to thank all members of the public who had shown their support for K-Dogg by providing information to the police or making gestures of solidarity with him.

“Bristol is a wonderful city full of diverse communities and I continue to be encouraged by its reactions to incidents like this,” he said.

Doctors said it would take at least six months before K-Dogg could start most things over again.

He was left permanently scarred with surgeons being unable to remove the glass and sand from his face.
