A violent gang chased a man into a takeaway and began smashing its windows using a hammer in violent scenes ‘like the Wild West’.
Footage taken from inside the takeaway appears to show a man throwing an object at a vehicle on Killinghall Road, Bradford, West Yorkshire.
The passengers in the car then spring after the person and end up running towards Killingall Fisheries takeaway on the busy road.
One of the gang pulled out a hammer and started to smash the door and window using the tool.
Later in the disturbing video a man attacked a BMW with a hammer and smashed the passenger’s window.
Police are now urging witnesses and members of the gang to come forward following the shocking incident.
Riaz Ahmed, Lib Dem councillor for Bradford Moor, said the images of the attack on Friday afternoon shocked him, reports the Telegraph & Argus.
Cllr Ahmed said: ‘I was very saddened to see the video of this vicious attack.
‘It was like a scene from out of the Wild West and as a councillor I thought ‘what has happened to this area?’
Police today arrested a 41-year-old man on suspicion of affray following the attack and after issuing an appeal.
A spokesman said: ‘A 41-year old man has been arrested on suspicion of affray in relation to an incident in Killinghall Road, Bradford on Friday.
‘He was later bailed pending further enquiries and enquiries are continuing.’
