5 Men Beating Up A Car With A Young Child In The Back Seat


This is the shocking moment five men attack a car with metal baseball bats while a young child sat in the back seat.
The five masked thugs are seen smashing their improvised weapons into the silver BMW while the vehicle waits to move ahead.
The footage was captured on Queen’s Park Road in Blackburn, Lancashire, on Saturday evening and shared on social media.
Police said they were treating it as a ‘targeted attack’ and said a 19-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of affray with officers now hunting ‘a number of other men’.
One man can be seen targeting the bonnet, windscreen and front passenger seat window.
The driver is not clearly visible but he is blocked from moving away by another car as hooded men attack the boot and rear window.
After repeated blows the glass in the windscreen starts to shatter and a piece of the metal work comes flying off the front of the vehicle.
Lancashire Police said: ‘Police were called at about 6.20pm yesterday to reports that a number of men with weapons were attacking a BMW car in the Queen’s Park Road area of the town.
‘The driver and his five year old son both received minor injuries during the incident which is being treated as a targeted attack.
One man, aged 19, from Blackburn was later arrested on suspicion of Affray. Enquiries are on-going to locate a number of other men.’
Detective Sgt Rob Trickett, of Blackburn CID, said: ‘While we do believe that this was a targeted attack it was nonetheless terrifying for this man and especially for his young son who was with him in the car.
‘I would appeal for anyone with information to contact us.’ Extra patrols have been put on in the area as reassurance.
