Birmingham gang filmed attacking driver with hammers and cricket bats | Cricket Bats | Cricket Bat News
**WARNING – VIOLENT SCENES**
The clip shows around 20 men armed with hammers, cricket bats, planks of wood and bricks running riot in Alum Rock, Birmingham.
The group caused mayhem as they destroyed property and left punters cowering inside the Kabul Darbar Afghan restaurant.
One member of the group could be seen jumping on the bonnet of a car while another shattered the brake lights with a hammer.
The dramatic footage shows one man with blood pouring from his head after being chased down and beaten by the violent mob.
At one point, one brave bloke tries to reason with the group, but he is shoved aside as the onslaught continues.
Following the event, the thugs are seen piling into two cars – one black and one silver – before speeding away.
A man then rushes to help the victim, as he sits on the concrete with blood seeping from his temple – appearing unable to stand.
West Midlands Police are aware of the incident and an investigation is under way.
Two men have been taken to hospital after the violent scenes.
Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
A West Midlands Police spokesman said: “Police are investigating a disorder where wooden bats and metal bars were brandished in St Joseph’s Road at around 8.45pm last night.
