A VIGILANTE mob beat an accused acid attacker to the ground on the streets of East London.
The suspect was kicked to the ground outside Maryland station Stratford, East London, before being battered with a plank of wood and having milk poured over him.
A man can be seen kicking out at the suspect, who is already on the floor by the time the footage begins
The group claim to have caught him about to commit an acid attack and at one point the accused man can be heard saying: “Alright, I’m sorry.”
He manages to get back to his feet after the beating before fleeing the scene on his bike.
Footage from the scene shows the alleged acid attacker lying face down in the road surrounded by a group of men.
As he stands up a man kicks him back to the tarmac and somebody in the crowd shouts: “Kill him, bro.”
He is then doused in milk before being beaten with a wooden plank
Another man attempts to intervene but the first man continues to kick and stomp him while he is down, making him scream out in pain.
The cameraman warns: “Yo, if you bring acid ever again.”
A second man then douses the suspect with what appears to be milk and boots him in the back.
As he lies on the ground following the beating, he is verbally taunted and replies saying ‘Alright, I’m sorry’
The crowd shouts: “Kill him, bruv. P.”
Somebody then strikes him with a plank of wood.
The man finally makes a getaway on his bike
A second video shows the man back on his feet appearing to threaten the mob as somebody says: “He has a knife in his hand. Leave him.”
They then back off as he gets on a yellow bike and moves away.
The Metropolitan Police told The Sun Online that they are aware of the footage but the incident was not reported to them.
