'Sickening' video shows man being beaten and kicked

'Sickening' video that has been released by police in Birmingham shows a man being punched and then falling to the ground unconscious as two attackers set on him as he walked home from a party.

The video is too graphic to show in full here. One attacker viciously kicks the victim as he lay on the ground unconscious. The other rifles through the victims pockets taking his mobile phone and wallet.

The attack happened in the early hours of the morning of 15 December on Bordesley Green Road.

Chief Inspector Dawn Miskella from Birmingham CID said: "The footage speaks for itself. It was an absolutely horrendous, unprovoked attack on an innocent man who was making his way home from a night out, leaving him with long-lasting injuries."
