THIS is the moment a gang of teen yobs throw a Deliveroo rider off his scooter during a shocking pack attack.
The youths swarm over the rider while one boy tries to steal his moped as he stops at a junction in Newham, East London.
In footage, captured by a stunned local, the gang of boys and girls rush over to the rider and quickly overpower him.
A group of boys are shown trying to lift the bike off the ground and ram it forward as the rider struggles to his feet.
But the rider is saved when a car drives down the road and scares the gang off.
The man winds down his window and shouts at the youths, before another passengers flings open his door, causing the boy on the scooter to slam down the bike as his pals scatter.
While the crew sprint down a nearby alley the Deliveroo picks up his bike and gets on with his journey.
The terrifying attack comes as London fights a deadly violent crime epidemic – with last year being the capital’s bloodiest in almost a decade.
Homicides reached 135 thanks to a plague of knife attacks gripping the city.
Deliveroo and UberEats riders are increasingly finding themselves vulnerable to gangs on the streets.

A 16-year-old boy was later charged with his murder.
Footage emerged in December of a Deliveroo rider being savagely beaten by a gang of 10 youths while delivering a KFC order in Moston, Manchester.
