Meanwhile the disturbing footage briefly shows another figure slumped in a doorway. It is believed he was also injured in the incident.

Facebook users have questioned why the watching crowd did not try to help – and voiced disgust some captured the stomach-churning scenes on camera.

On the ‘Daily Sikh Updates’ Facebook site, one individual posted: ‘How many against one? No one there had the courage to step in. Shame on all the people that stood and watched.’

Another asked: ‘Why is someone filming when they could be helping or at least trying to stop it? This is in front of a hotel reception – why didn’t the bouncers stop it?’

Officers have now urged the victim to come forward.
