SHOCKING videos show a man throw a drink at a restaurant worker sparking a violent brawl in the street outside.
The first clip shows a member of staff at Big John’s in Birmingham hit in the face by a man who then flees.
Separate footage then shows Big John’s workers, thought to be the female victim, repeatedly punching a man in the street.
Police today (fri) confirmed they are investigating allegations of assaults inside and outside the restaurant in Corporation Street on Monday.
CCTV footage from Big John’s clearly shows a man standing at the entrance to the restaurant.
Using considerable force, he throws the drink at the woman who recoils as the
liquid splashes inside the restaurant. He then throws another item at the door as he leaves.
The clip taken outside the restaurant begins with three men and a woman all in Big John’s uniforms surrounding a man.
The man is shielding his head as two of the men and a woman punch him repeatedly to the head and torso.
One of the male staff can be seen trying to intervene and stop the attack.
The man continues to try and get away, shielding himself from the blows.
The female staff member grabs the man by the back of his hood and punches him to the head.
She pulls back on his hood as the other male staff member attempts to restrain her and to the shouts of members of the public of: “Stop, stop.”
She continues pulling and ripping at the man’s hood as he repeats: “Allahu akbar.”
Finally she lets go and the man can be seen running off as the clip comes to an end.
A worker at Big John’s headquarters in Birmingham, who did not want to be named, said: “The man came into the store and offered the cleaning lady to come into the toilet with him. She refused and he hit her.
“The manager was then called in and we tried to remove him. He then spat in one of the employee’s face. He then throws a can of pop in her face.
“He then runs away and the members of staff chase after him and called the police.”
A spokeswoman for West Midlands Police said: “Police were called to reports of an assault at a fast food restaurant in Corporation Street, Birmingham at 5.30pm on Monday (4 March).
