Police in Vancouver are warning parents about a disturbing trend involving teens that swarm a lone peer before punching and kicking them until they fall to the ground, then forcing them to kiss their attackers' shoes.

The Vancouver Police Department says the demeaning bullying rituals are sometimes videoed and posted online.

Sergeant Steve Addison says beyond physical harm, these types of incidents can cause deep-rooted emotional trauma, and parents should speak to their children about bullying and violence.

He's asking parents to encourage their children to call police if they have information or get help from someone they trust.
