Barman beaten up in Barking pub
- Credit: Archant
A barman was repeatedly punched in the head by a customer in the middle of the day as pubgoers looked on from their seats.
The assault, at the Barking Arms in Station Parade, was captured by a CCTV camera which shows a fierce and apparently unprovoked beating.
In the video, a man is seen talking across the bar before a member of staff wags his finger at him.
The attacker then grabs the barman by his shirt and strikes him in the head and face half a dozen times with such power that his own hat falls off.
Before striding out moments later, the aggressor swipes up his fallen cap while continuing to shout and point at his victim.
