A terrifying video has been released online showing the moment a homeless man is stabbed as he is sleeping on the floor.
The shocking clip shows CCTV footage of the poor man sleeping under his sleeping bag, in what appears to be the corridor of a block of flats, the Mirror reports.
The creepy black and white video then shows another man slowly making the way up the stairs and approaching his unconscious victim.
After a few minutes, the attacker lifts up a knife above his head and then brutally plunges the blade into the sleeping bag.
The sleeping man is immediately woken up and begins writhing in pain, before trying to back away and falling down the stairs.
His malicious attacker then calmly walks along the corridor without skipping a beat.
There’s no news on whether the man was badly hurt but the footage was uploaded towhere it has been watched more than 117,000 times in less than 24 hours.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
