A man was kicked and punched by five men in a shocking assault in a Toby Carvery car park in south Liverpool.
The brutal attack happened when the victim was sat in the back of a blue Ford Tourneo vehicle at about 5pm on Sunday, at the Speke Boulevard restaurant.
An eyewitness described the distressing attack where the victim was bungled into the back of a Toyota car before it drove off.
He told The Liverpool Echo : “The victim was in the back of mini-cab in the car park. I saw one man climb into the back of the mini-cab and attack him. Another man joined in.
"A Toyota then pulled up and more men got out and attacked the victim. They all piled in and managed to drag him out of the mini-cab and throw him on the floor of the car park.
