This is the terrifying moment masked attackers armed with knives targeted a pizza delivery driver in north London.

The horrifying CCTV clip appears to show around five men with their faces covered approaching the driver as he pulled up in a quiet residential street in Kingsbury, Brent.

They appear to swipe at the delivery driver with blades in the video which was shared on social media by a group campaigning against moped and motorbike theft in the UK.

In a second clip, one of the men appears to hold the victim, aged in his 50s, while the others brandish huge knives in Rugby Road on September 24.

One of the attackers then flees on the moped as the others follow on foot.

The victim escaped unhurt, police said.

A spokeswoman for the Met told the Standard they had received two reports of a robbery in the residential road at around 4pm.

“The victim, a man in his 50s, reported being attacked by at least three men in Rugby Road who took his moped and a pizza.

“A witness later reported seeing knives used in the same incident,” she said.

It was currently unclear if any arrests had been made in connection with the incident and enquiries were ongoing, the spokeswoman added.
