Biker Knocks Out Beggar And Leaves Him At Roadside

Biker Knocks Out Beggar And Leaves Him At Roadside

A biker furious at being pestered at a red light by a beggar climbed off his vehicle and knocked the man unconscious before dragging his body to the side of the road in the Russian capital Moscow.

And video footage of the altercation between the biker and the older beggar shows that after leaving the man with his head dangerously close to the moving traffic, the biker returned his machine and drove off as if nothing had happened.

The images were captured by the dashboard camera of motorist Artem Kovalev, 35, who said: "I saw that the two blokes were having a ding-dong on the street. The biker was obviously upset about the fact that the man had stood in the way as he tried to go down the middle of the lane of traffic. The beggar had a sign asking for money and I guess he was hopeful the biker might have given him something to get out of the way.

"Instead he got a slap on the face, and instead of taking this as a warning and making off, he continued to try and justify what he was doing which resulted in a punch from the biker that floored him completely."

Realising that the man was not going to get up, the bike grabbed him by the legs and dragged him to the side of the road then dumped him in the middle of some parked cars.

Despite the fact that the man is lying behind a parked car in a car park and his head is next to a busy road, he was left there and not moved by anybody, which shocked internet users who watched the posting.

The incident happened in the Sokolniki District of Moscow but local police said they were not investigating as they had not received a complaint and had no information about the clip other than the fact that it had been posted online recently.
