This shocking footage reveals the moment a gang of vigilantes beat a man in street after he tried to attack people with acid.
The suspect is shown being kicked to the ground outside Maryland train station in East London and battered with a plank of wood before having milk poured over him.
A mob claim to have caught him shortly after he had thrown acid inside a shop after someone refused to hand over some change.
He manages to get back to his feet after the beating before fleeing the scene on his rental bike.
The witness who filmed the attack, who asked to remain anonymous, said: 'I saw someone on a bike wearing a mask go up to a guy coming out of the shop and say "Boss, give me some change".
'The guy he was talking to politely declined and then he said "at least let me take a drink", but the guy told him to go away.
'He then got off the bike and went straight for his pocket, pulled out a bottle and started throwing the substance inside the shop towards the guy's direction.
'He ended up taking the bottle and throwing it away then he and his pals started beating him up.
He got up wobbling everywhere then went in his pocket and took the knife out. Then he jumped on his bike and rode off.
'Some of the substance hit the other guy in the eyes and he was complaining about having irritated eyes so we gave him water to wash his eyes and got him a cab to the hospital.'
It comes amid soaring rates of acid attacks across Britain, with more than one a day recorded in London alone last year.
Joanne Rand became the first person to be murdered with acid in the UK after she was splashed from head to toe by Xeneral Webster in June 2017.

And last December, Arthur Collins - the ex-boyfriend of reality TV star Ferne McCann - was jailed for 20 years for an acid attack in a nightclub in Dalston, East London.
It shows the the alleged acid attacker lying face down in the road outside Maryland railway station in Stratford, surrounded by a group of men.
As he stands up a man kicks him back to the tarmac and somebody in the crowd shouts: 'Kill him, bro.'
Another man attempts to intervene but the first man continues to kick and stomp him while he is down, making him scream out in pain.
The cameraman warns: 'Yo, if you bring acid ever again.'
A second man then douses the suspect with what appears to be milk and boots him in the back.
The crowd shouts: 'Kill him, bruv. P****.' Somebody then strikes him with a plank of wood.

They then back off as he gets on his yellow rental bike and pedals away.
The Metropolitan Police said it could find no record of the incident having been reported.
