THIS is the moment violent thugs chased a man onto a busy roundabout with machetes and hammers – before a Good Samaritan rushed to help.
A man, dressed in a white t-shirt, can be seen desperately trying to escape two men who have cornered him amid the traffic in Birmingham on Saturday, at around 4:20pm.
As he tries to flee from the attackers wielding their weapons, the man blindly runs into the middle of the road and into the path of a silver Vauxhall Corsa.
But even after bouncing across the bonnet, the pair won't let the man go – and continue to strike him with the huge blade and the hammer.
Baffled motorists were forced to stop on the hectic junction as the unbelievable attack in broad daylight spilled across the street.
The chaos only subsided when a brave bystander ran to the man's aid and pounced on the back of one of the assailants.
