The attack begins when one youth suddenly lunges for the victim and drags him from his makeshift bed in the Moorfield multi-storey car park in Truro.

He and a shirtless friend aim kicks at the victim’s head before the others gather around and rain blows down on him.

A male in black Nike joggers stamps on the man as he tries to protect himself.

Moments later, another smashes a glass bottle over his head.

The victim makes no attempt to fight back, even as one of the teens kicks him square in the face.

The distressing video ends with the gang hurling abuse at him before finally leaving.

HORROR VIDEO

The footage has been widely shared on social media.

A man who posted the clip called it “the most sickening thing I’ve seen in a long time”.

A Facebook user who watched the video said: “What’s wrong with people?

“This is disgusting.”

A second said: “A poor defenceless man.

“I hope they’re punished for this.”

Another said she felt ill after watching the clip.

‘IT NEARLY MADE ME SICK’

“I’ve just seen the video and it’s the worst thing I’ve ever seen. It nearly made me sick,” she said.

Today, police said six arrests have been made after the “serious assault”, which took place between 10pm and 10.15pm on Saturday night.

Detective Inspector Steve Moorcroft said: “We are aware of footage that is circulating across social media which appears to show an horrific assault on a homeless man by a gang of teenagers in Truro.

“Six teenagers are currently in police custody having been arrested in connection to this incident.

“Enquiries continue into this matter.

“I wish to reassure the public that the matter is being dealt with, but ask for the sake of the victim that people do not share footage of the attack.”

The victim was not in the car park yesterday afternoon, although his bedding was still there, CornwallLive reports.

However, worried Truro residents tracked him down later that night and shared a photo to show he’s safe and well.

Two kind-hearted locals have also paid for a two-week Airbnb stay for him.

Anyone with information on the attack is urged to contact police on 101 quoting incident 973 of February 12.
