Shocking moment girl kicks elderly Asian man, 80, to the ground causing his turban to fall off before spitting in his face

Shameful: The girl knocked the pensioner to the ground after punching and kicking him - and is shown here spitting in his face

This is the shocking moment a girl kicked and punched an 80-year-old Sikh to the ground in broad daylight before spitting in his face.

Police are hunting for the unidentified thug, who knocked off the pensioner's turban and left him sprawled on the pavement.

Her sickening and unprovoked attack was captured on video and shared on Facebook.

Police are treating the attack as serious malicious wounding - punishable with up to five years in prison.

The footage shows a girl knocking an elderly man to the floor near Trinity Street in Coventry city centre on 10 August at 8.30pm.

She was flanked by three men as she continued hurling abuse and spitting on the man.

The only person to help, by picking up the victim's turban, approached as the thugs walked away.

Detectives have urged witnesses to come forward to help catch the girl.

Coventry Police Chief Superintendent Andy Nicholson, said: 'This is a despicable, violent attack on an elderly man in broad daylight. The victim is an 80-year-old man, he was left with a bloodied nose and a black eye.

'A video showing the assault is gathering momentum on social media and quite rightly the woman's actions are being condemned by everyone who's viewed it.
