A teen thug has been filmed launching an “unprovoked” attack on a stranger, repeatedly kicking and punching him as he lay on the floor.

Robin Foster, 19, was walking home from a night out when he bumped into his victim just after midnight on August 27 last year.

He shouted “yo mate” at the man and asked for a cigarette in Oldbury, West Midlands, BirmimghamLive report.

But, without warning, he suddenly floored the stranger with a punch to the side of his head.

The victim was chased almost a mile to a Shell garage where he begged for a cashier to call the police before Foster, then aged 18, continued his attack.

Footage taken on the garage’s forecourt shows him repeatedly stomping on the man’s head and body.

As his victim lies in a foetal position, Foster continues to kick his torso and back.

The 34-year-old victim lost two teeth and suffered cuts to his forehead after the attack. The attacker fled the scene as paramedics tended to the injured man.

Foster was arrested on October 4 from his home in Oldbury after a man got in touch naming the attacker.

He was charged with wounding and was jailed for seven years and four months after admitting the offence at Wolverhampton Crown Court on July 22.

Investigating officer, PC Andy Mimnagh, said: "This was a brutal, shocking attack and from what we understand totally unprovoked. The victim had missed his bus so started walking home when Foster called out to him…seconds later he was under attack.

"The victim can be seen on the video curling up in a foetal position as he tried to defend himself. One customer at the petrol station thought they were play fighting before seeing blood pouring from the man’s nose and mouth.

"I wish the victim well for the future and hopefully, when Foster is eventually released, he will take advantage of help offered to him and create a brighter future.”
