Cornwall: Homeless man attacked at Moorfield multi-storey car park

This is the shocking moment a group of teenagers were filmed beating a homeless man senseless in a car park.

The attack, which was reportedly filmed by the passenger of a car, shows five young men and one girl punching and kicking the man by his makeshift bed in a multi-storey car park in Truro, Cornwall Live reports.

The horrifying footage shows one thug hitting the victim over the head with a bottle while another lad, who is shirtless, kicks him.

A third then lunges at him and punches him repeatedly about the face, head and body.

The video has been shared widely on social media. It is graphic and may be distressing to watch.

Police and the city’s antisocial behavior officer, Stephen Lennon, are understood to have been made aware of the seemingly unprovoked violence.

A reporter who went to the scene earlier today said the victim was not there – but the same bedding seen in the video remained.

The condition of the victim is unknown.

One distressed Truro resident wrote on Facebook: “I have just received five videos of five teenagers kicking and beating a homeless man in the car park last night.

“The videos can’t be posted on here. However, the anti-social behavior officer and the police are involved.

“These videos make horrific viewing. One female was involved. What in the world possesses these youngsters?”

Another poster who saw the video added: “What is wrong with people? This is disgusting.”

One added: “This is disgusting. A poor defenceless man. I hope they are punished for this.”

Another added: “I hope the people that did it get in trouble with the police. Awful stuff.”

One said: “I have just seen the video and it’s the worst thing I have ever seen nearly made me sick. These people need exactly what they have.”
