A video showing a man being beaten up and chased in Birmingham has been shared.

The shocking footage shows a man being beaten with bats and sticks by a group in the car park of an Afghani restaurant in the city.

The violence is believed to have taken place at around 8.45pm on Thursday, May 10 on St Joseph's Street.

The footage shared here on Facebook shows a group of men also vandalising a Mercedes.

One man jumps up and down on the bonnet of the car as others attack the occupant.

Some bystanders try in vain to break up the violence but are also set upon.
