WATCH: Shocking video released of Birmingham petrol station assault

November 19, 2014, 9:52 am

Police have released shocking video footage of a man being assaulted at a Birmingham garage after he refused to give someone a lift.

The assault, which left the man with broken ribs, took place on Saturday 8 November at 6.40am at Tesco Petrol Station in Spring Hill, Winson Green.

The 44-year-old man started to fill his van up at the petrol station, when he is approached by a man, who asked for a lift to Erdington.

The driver refused and went into the kiosk to pay for his petrol; as he did so, the man got into his vehicle and tried to drive away.

The owner spotted the man trying to do this and ran outside to stop him and pull him out the van. The offender then repeatedly punched and kicked the man, before walking off and then coming back and assaulting him again.

The driver suffered broken ribs and cuts to his head following the attack.,

DC Omar Sharif from the Violent Crime Team based at Bournville Lane, said: “This is an unprovoked attack on a member of the public trying to go about his daily business. He has been repeatedly punched and kicked leaving him with broken ribs. The assault is so severe, the hose is nearly pulled out of the petrol tank. Anyone who recognises the offender or with any information should contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers, confidentially on 0800 555 111.
