Brothers battered by lockdown party thugs after ‘asking them to keep noise down’
This is the moment two brothers were battered after apparently asking lockdown party thugs keep the noise down.
Abdul Hafiz went to a neighbour’s home to see if they would ‘quieten down’, however things soon spiralled out of control and he was attacked.
His brother rushed to his defence after hearing the clash, however they were both surrounded by the group and chased down their street.
Mr Hafiz, 44, claims he was then ‘battered with a broken fence panel and knocked unconscious’ by the thugs, Birmingham Live reports.
He and his 38-year-old brother Abdulla Al Mamun feared for their lives during the attack, which took place in Walsall at around 11pm on Monday.
It happened after they heard “shouting, loud music and disruption” coming from a neighbouring property, prompting Mr Hafiz to visit the home.
CCTV shows the moment he and his brother were quickly surrounded by a group of men, who rained down blows while the terrified men were on the floor.
Another neighbour can be seen trying to act as peacemaker but the brothers were chased down the road and out of shot.
Mr Hafiz claims it was here that he was ‘battered with a broken fence panel and knocked unconscious’.
The attackers fled as witnesses called 999 and rushed to help the victims, who were both taken to hospital.
Mr Hafiz, who was out cold for 15 minutes following the ordeal, suffered a fractured hip, while Mr Al Mamun was left with facial injuries.
The shocking incident is being investigated by West Midlands Police.
A force spokesman said: “We’re investigating after two men were injured following disorder in Lord Street, Palfrey (Walsall), at around 10.45pm on Monday.
