This is the shocking moment yobs launched a savage attack in a McDonald’s, leaving two teenage boys injured.
The disturbing video shows a gang of masked and hooded thugs set upon one of their victims, kicking and punching him as they desperately try to shield themselves.
A member of the gang is seen hurling a chair at one of the victims as they try to protect their face with their hands.
A McDonald ‘s employee can be seen trying to usher the gang out of the restaurant on Conduit Street in Lichfield, Staffordshire.
A female bystander can also be seen covering her mouth in shock as the gang start to leave.
It is unclear what caused the violence.
Staffordshire Police were called to the fast food outlet at 7.20pm on January 30.
They have confirmed that two teenage boys suffered facial injuries in the attack and furniture was damaged inside the restaurant.
Cops have launched an investigation and have increased patrols in the local area as inquiries are carried out.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the police via 101 or online, quoting incident number 609 of 30 January.
A McDonald’s spokesperson said: “We have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to violence in our restaurants and this behaviour is completely unacceptable.
“The police were called immediately and we will continue to support them with their ongoing investigations.”
In an unrelated incident, violence broke out in a branch of McDonald’s in North London last month.
Footage which circulated on social media saw youths trade punches in a branch in Wood Green.
At one point one of the brawlers is forcefully knocked over into the self-service machine.
Panicked workers were seen trying to stop the fight as a number of yobs piled in.
And kids were spotted looking on in disbelief and fright as the violence unfolded.
In the footage, customers can be heard screaming for the brawl to “stop” while the group – who predominantly seem to be young men – shout threats at each other.
