SHOCKING footage shows a gang of masked thugs destroying a BMW with baseball bats while a terrified little boy was in the back seat yesterday.

Both the man driving and his five-year-old son were injured in what is believed to be a “targeted attack”.
Locals could be heard gasping in disbelief as the five men relentlessly battered the silver motor for at least 30 seconds.
The driver tried to get away from the onslaught but he was boxed in the junction by gridlocked traffic.
At one point, one of the baseball bat-wielding maniacs appears to stick the weapon through the passenger-side window.
