This is the horrifying moment violent thugs wielding machetes and hammers attack a man at a busy road in Birmingham.
Dashcam footage shared on Twitter shows two men wildly swinging their weapons at a third man at around 4.20pm last Saturday.
As he tries to flee from the attackers, the man runs into the middle of the road and into the path of a silver Vauxhall Corsa.
He bounces off the hood onto the road and desperately tries to escape his assailants as they continue to strike at him.
Motorists were forced to stop on the junction as the daylight attack took place. The brawl appeared to subside after a brave bystander pounced on the back of one of the attackers – allowing the victim to flee.
Similar video footage captured in Alum Rock shows a gang of four armed with machetes chasing a man along a street in broad daylight in front of startled residents.
