This is the moment when an unfortunate shopkeeper was attacked by a gang of monkeys when he returned home to northern India.
Nikunj Goyal, an incense seller in the city of Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh, ran home from home around 10:30 on Saturday morning when the attack took place.
CCTV caught the macaque monkeys who chased him further down the street before they jumped up and threw him on the floor.
Nikunj Goyal, an incense seller from North India, came home from work on Saturday morning at around 10:30 am, where he was attacked by a pack of macaque monkeys (pictured, one jumps at him)
Two other monkeys then jump on him and bite him before he throws one off and manages to get up.
He then walks down the road when a neighbor comes out with a broom in an attempt to help him ward off the primates.
Goyal suffered from bites and scratches in the attack and had to be treated afterwards for rabies.
On Facebook, Goyal said in Hindi that the problem with the monkey had become so great that it was difficult for people to leave their homes.
He also said the authorities were turning a blind eye.
The video shows a protective box around the CCTV camera – to help protect against damage from monkeys.
The rapid expansion of Indian cities has led to the macaque's natural habitat being destroyed and often forcing them to live next to people in cities.
Attacks are not unusual, with local media being reported that – in the town of Mathura, which is close to Vrindavan – 386 monkey attacks were reported the year until April.
While the monkeys jumped against him, Goyal stumbled back and fell to the floor, clinging to his back and biting him
Goyal suffered cuts and scrapes in the short struggle and needed rabies treatment. He later posted video of the Facebook attack
