Shocking mobile phone footage shows the moment a man has his head stamped on while lying motionless in the middle of the road after a violent street brawl.
The video shows the aftermath of an altercation that began inside the Albion Rooftop bar on York Street in South Melbourne last Saturday morning, before spilling out into mob violence on Cecil Street.
In the clip a man laying still on the road is punched in the head and then kicked and stamped on so violently his body appears to bounce from the impact.
Several other men kick and punch another man while at least two individuals film the brutal scene on their phones.
Remarkably Victoria Police say nobody was seriously injured – but they are appealing for witnesses.
‘Investigators were told up to 10 males were involved in a fight on Cecil Street after they were ejected following an altercation within a licensed premises on York Street at about 2.20am,’ a Victoria Police statement said.
