A furious father has been filmed launching a brutal attack on two boys he believes had been bullying his son.
The angry dad carried out he violent beating in a children’s playground after storming over to their youngsters to take them to task.
He initially starts shouting at one of the boys, before hitting him and knocking him to the ground.
The 34-year-old then targets another boy and shouts of the group as the punched boy lies stricken on the ground.
The other boy, who was sitting on a swing, is seen cowering in fear from the clearly livid dad while his pals watch on in horror.
It took place in Krasnodar in south-western Russia’s Krasnodar Krai region.
The incident only calms down when another adult goes over to stop it.
The mum of one of the attacked boys, named only as Olga, said the incident involved nine-year-old children and was a petty row between the youngsters as is often seen on playgrounds.
She said: “Initially the confrontation happened between the boys.
“My nine-year-old son Ratmir and his pal Timur were out on the playground, when one of the neighboring boys approached them and started being pick at them and throw food around.”
She said her son “shooed” the boy away, but just moments later his furious dad came over and shoved Ratmir in the face with the palm of his hand.
He then grabbed his hair and shoved him some more in a rage.
Olga said her son, terrified, lay still on the floor until the attack finished then ran home as fast as he could. She said he is no longer sleeping well at night and is scared to go back to the play area.
The mum took her son to be checked out to find he had luckily suffered only minor bruising.
She has since reported the incident to the police, who have confirmed they are investigating. Via Mirror
