This is the moment masked thugs escaped with a wad of bank notes after punching a man to the ground in Lozells.

The pair struck on May 25, targeting their victim as he crossed Hunters Road.

In footage, released today by West Midlands Police, the two men – both hooded and wearing masks – can be seen following the victim.

They surround the man and launch their violent attack, punching him repeatedly until he falls to the ground.

Cash can be seen falling out of their victim’s pockets, which is quickly swiped by the thugs before they run from the scene – one heading into Barker Street and the other continuing along Hunters Road.

The attack happened just after 9pm.

Police had issued an appeal to help trace the attackers back in July, but no arrests have yet been made.

Today, the force released the CCTV footage in a further effort to catch the men.

Their appeal read: “We’re continuing to ask for help in identifying these men following a robbery in Hunters Road, Lozells, on 25 May.

“Two men punched another man to the ground before stealing cash.
