This is the terrifying moment a gang of teenagers storm into the staff area inside a McDonald's restaurant and assault workers.
Video taken on a mobile phone showed a male worker standing by the door where a sign indicated "staff only" as he argued with two young boys.
Some customers gathered before one of the balaclava-clad boys charged forward and attacked the employee.

"Out! Out! Out," a woman repeatedly warned the boys.
In a second video, the boy returned to the restaurant holding a broom.
A man can be seen holding a "wet floor" sign and chasing the boy out of the eatery, shouting: "I will break your head!"
One woman is heard saying "come on lads behave" before the group leave the restaurant.
The incident took place inside the Stonedale Retail Park branch on East Lancashire Road on Sunday, March 12, reported Liverpool Echo.
A spokesperson for McDonald's said: "We take a zero tolerance approach to violence towards our employees and customers, and are committed to finding ways to work with the police and community leaders to ensure our Stonedale Lane restaurant is a welcoming and safe environment for all."
