He rushes to the track and beats the trainer up before the dog race: the attack is brutal

The episode takes place at a greyhound racing dog track in south-east London. Still unaware of the reasons for the act, the assailant was arrested.

The attacker attacks the trainer leading the greyhounds from behind.

The attack was fierce, and the sequence of blows was brutal. It is not clear why and what prompted the attacker to attack a greyhound trainer who was taking the dogs to the starting blocks in the race. The images coming from the Crayford Greyhound Track, in south east London, tell us what happened in those moments of horror.

A video sequence recorded by a photographer present at the dog track shows a hooded figure overcoming a fence and walking briskly toward the man leading the animals on a leash. He comes from behind and hits him on the head and back. Stunned, the coach is dumbfounded and dazed, prey to the wrath of the still troublemaker who pounces on him, slapping and kicking him. During the scuffle, the greyhounds withdrew in fear.

The man is severely beaten and unable to defend himself.
