In the wannabe world of ‘baby bikes’ calling themselves the ‘Youngins of Chaos’ – beating up school kids and bragging about their cache of fake weapons online

  • Youngins of Chaos is a new ‘Nike bikie’ gang from the south of Perth
  • It has 50 members and they are believed to be between the ages of 14 and 20
  • The Western Australian police have never heard of them but said they would be checking them

A violent teenage gang has emerged from a high school and its members are accused of beating up other students and boasting about their money and replica weapons online.

Perth’s ‘Youngins of Chaos’ gang is believed to number about 50 young people, some of whom pose with cash and fake weapons on their personal social media pages.

Its members – presumably current and former students at Como Secondary College in Perth – have attacked students at the school, according to parents, and have even piqued the interest of the Western Australian police.

“They threaten and beat up children,” said one parent.

Police officers were called to the school in south Perth because of a dispute involving a Youngins of Chaos gang member.

The parent said there were fears the youth gang would become “a breeding ground for the bikie gangs.”

The teen gang members appear to be Eshays and what are known as ‘Nike bikies’ – both boy tribes who wear sporty baseball caps and sports label apparel, whether real or copied.

The Youngins of Chaos have their own logo – already seen on hoodies in photos proudly posted online – including a gun, Nike shoe, a balaclava and ‘6k’, an abbreviation for the Perth zip code.

‘Everyone knows what the weapons are used for, that explains itself. The (Nike) shoe just recognizes the way we dress and the balaclava, ” the 17-year-old gang leader reportedly told The West Australian.

The boy, apparently the son of a former bicycle gang member, said there were already 50 Youngins of Chaos members between the ages of 14 and 20 who were drinking together.

WA Police said they did not know about the Youngins of Chaos.

“We will judge The West Australian’s information and photos by our information,” he said.

WA Police Force encourages parents to talk to their children and remind them of the risks and outcomes of involvement in criminal activity, including the long-term consequences criminal records can have on an individual.

Digby Mercer, Como’s secondary school director, said school violence was “ absolutely not happening. ”

“Any student who acts threatening or violent will be dealt with appropriately and criminal cases will be referred to the police,” he said.
