Horrifying footage captures the moment a thug headbutted a woman in the face before launching a sickening attack on a Good Samaritan that leapt to her defence.
Stephen Doyle and Samuel Bullen attacked Denise Sloan after they had been drinking in Paignton, Devon, on January 11.
The shocking incident in a local takeaway was caught on CCTV and showed Colin Mclean quickly jump to her aid.
Mr Mclean throws one punch which sends Doyle staggering backwards, dazed, before he regains his senses and launches after him.
Petrified Mr Mclean was then chased through town in a taxi before Doyle and Bullen set upon him outside his hotel.
