A video emerged online showing a group of gangsters confronting a guy at a staircase landing and filming their act.
One of the gangsters was seen grabbing onto the guy’s shirt and pinning him against the wall, as the guy held his phone up seemingly to record the assault.
Meanwhile, the cameraman who appears to have the attention span of a goldfish, was seen focusing the camera on an illegal vaporiser that he was holding on to.
The gangster who was holding onto the guy’s shirt then punched him in the head before dragging him off camera.
The two assailants then rained blows on the guy while he was down on the ground, kicking, punching and stepping on him.
According to Chapter 224 of the Penal Code, anyone who disturbs public peace by fighting in public is guilty of committing an affray.
Upon conviction, offenders could face a jail term of up to one year and/or a fine of up to $5,000.
