A large group of out of control children ganged up on a man and beat him in middle of the street, according to police in the United Kingdom.

London police said that they have arrested two children after being accused of punching the middle aged man in the face as they were walking home from school.

The children face a charge of actual bodily harm. Police appealed for information leading to the arrest of the children.

According to the police investigation, the incident unfolded on Chiswick High Road, on Monday around 6:00 p.m.

Witnesses at the scene reported that the large group of children were seen running up and down the street before the attack.

The victim allegedly grabbed one of the kids’ coat, prompting the beating. As the man was being assaulted in middle of the street, a car nearly ran over some of the children.

The victim managed to run into the Kitchen Pantry cafe, where he sought refuge. The 10 children stormed into the cafe, but they were kicked out and the doors were locked.

When police arrived at the scene, the children ran away, but police were able to detain two of the suspects. Police said that the victim suffered facial injuries as a result of the attack.
