The footage, which was posted by the Instagram account @imjustshef on February 27, begins with the person filming crossing the road to capture the mayhem breaking out outside the dessert restaurant. A number of people can then be seen kicking the victim as he was on the group and were heard shouting before allegedly stealing thousands of pounds worth of jewellery.

A caption on the video reads: "A man makes it out financially but still can’t have nice watches and chains. Instead, people look for an opportunity to take him down and steal his jewellery like a pack of hyenas on a lion… £50,000+ in jewels got snatched."
