Shocking video – captured by a neighbor on a cell phone – was shared anonymously on social media last weekend and has gone viral.
It shows several men attacking a white car and the driver in the street below, while a woman in the background calls the police.
Suddenly, a man with a pitchfork starts pushing him through the driver’s window towards the victim.
The man filming shouts, “They are stabbed with a pitchfork. He is shredded. He hit my car. ‘
The woman says to the police, “He is being stabbed. Oh my God. Oh my God. Someone is stabbed. ‘
The attackers then flee to their vehicles and ram the victim’s car out of the way, before scraping another parked car as they escape.
The woman on the phone cries, “Oh, my God, my car.”
