This is the moment a group of guys brawled in the street and threw fists after a fight broke out in front of astonished families and children in a seaside town.

Footage of the incident, which has been posted online, shows the guys fighting in a car park at East Beach, Shoeburyness, near Southend, Essex.

The savage attack is said to have taken place shortly before 8.30 p.m. on Friday evening in front of shocked passers-by in the famous seaside resort.

Although they have yet to make any arrests or locate the alleged victim, police are still investigating the event.

The video begins with two guys arguing in the parking lot while a third man steps between them in an attempt to settle the situation.

As the situation escalates, you may see cars passing by and other people walking by.

As a fourth guy approaches from behind and assaults the same man, one of the men, who is shirtless, faces him and punches.

The two assailants then pulled the guy they were going to knock to the ground and started punching him.

Screams can be heard in the background as a crowd, including some young people, begins to gather.

Shortly after, onlookers are seen helping the injured man as a lady with a small child approaches.

As passers-by rush to help him, the guy is still lying on the ground and the extent of his injuries are unclear.

An enraged lady approaches the shirtless man who is still at the scene and slaps him in the face.

As other onlookers approach to help put some space between the victim and her attacker, he pushes her away.

According to the police, they have not yet located the accused attackers or the victim of the video.

“We are aware of a video circulating online of an incident in Shoebury,” an Essex Police official said.

“Just before 8.30pm last night, Sunday August 14, colleagues from the ambulance service informed us of an incident in East Beach.

One guy was allegedly assaulted by another man, according to the complaint. Then, according to reports, the two men fled the area.

“We came and searched the area, but neither victim nor suspect could be found.” We are always looking for things.

Two rapid response vehicles were sent to the scene, but when they arrived the patient had already fled, so they withdrew after searching the area.
