Shocking moment youths scuffle with huge ‘knives’ in broad daylight attack in front of terrified tram passengers

This is the shocking moment youngsters armed with what look like huge knives attack a lone boy in broad daylight.

Chaos erupted in full view of tram passengers on Thursday as a group of hooded menacing slashed and stabbed another knife-wielding man in the street.

Passengers in Droylsden, Manchester, can be heard shouting “f****** hell” and “better not cut it with the blade” amid the carnage.

Footage then shifts to the front of the tram where thugs rain stab wounds on their victim who is cowering on the tracks.

They seem to make several contacts with the boy – who is sitting upright – as they mercilessly hurl blades at him.

A number of the group then slip away as one boy stays with the boy to deliver more stabbing before getting on a bike and running away.

The victim then appears to get back up before the video ends in a dramatic way.

Moments later, another clip shows two ambulances and paramedics attending the scene of the stabbing as a police cordon was thrown down.

Two men were taken to hospital with leg injuries that are not considered life-threatening, Greater Manchester Police said.

No arrests have yet been made.

A Section 60 – which gives cops greater power to stop and search – is now in place in the area until 6 p.m. Saturday.

The horrific attack, shared online, has sparked shock and anger among Britons.

A lambasted: “State of this country”

While another fumed: “It won’t be long before the good citizens arm themselves because this is spiraling out of control.

“It’s normalizing when it’s really not normal.”
