Horrifying video shows man and woman dragged to ground and kicked in 'mugging'


A horrifying video shows a man and woman being dragged to the ground and being kicked in a reported mugging on a busy street in London. It has not been confirmed if it was a mugging, however an item is seemingly pulled from one of the victim’s hands in the footage.

The two thugs, who have not yet been caught, are seen attacking the pair at around 7am on Sunday, May 12, before fleeing the scene in a white 4x4 Audi. Horrified onlookers stood in shock as the alarming incident unfolded just yards away from London Euston station, one of the busiest transport hubs in the country.

A woman, believed to be a friend of the mugging victims, was seen watching on in horror as the pair were attacked on Eversholt Street in north London, leaving them sprawled on the ground, reports the Mirror.

Disturbing CCTV footage captured each of the men attacking one victim. One thug, dressed in a black hoodie, was seen grabbing the man and throwing him onto the road before aggressively kicking him in the face. The supposed mugger appears to tear something away from his victim's hands before fleeing.

The second attacker, dressed in a purple hoodie, appears to drag the woman back to the pavement by her hair as she tries to escape into the road. Her head is then pressed against the side of the road, but she manages to escape the attackers grasp and start pursuing the other thug. As she attempts to flee, she is held down again by the second man.

The attackers then flee in a white Audi 4x4, narrowly avoiding crashing into the male victim, who had walked into the road. Shouting is heard throughout, as a man can be heard screaming "let's go."

A Met Police spokesperson said: "Police were called at 06:55hrs on Sunday, 12 May, to reports of a fight in Eversholt Street, NW1. Officers attended the location. All parties had left when police arrived.
