SHOCKING footage appears to show a security guard at London’s famous Savoy Hotel kicking and punching a homeless man before stamping on him as he cowers on the floor.
The suited guard at the five-star hotel is filmed questioning then punching the victim in the face and upper body before hurling him to the floor.
He continues to rain brutal blows down on the man as he curls up on the ground outside the landmark £500-a-night establishment on The Strand.
Doormen wearing coat tails and a top hat at the luxury hotel watch on as the bald security guard strikes the man in a sickening assault on December 30 last year.
The guard – who is wearing a dark suit and tie – then begins booting the dishevelled man, who is wearing a winter jacket with fluorescent stripes and a woolly hat.
He then begins striking him in the face again.
As the attack continues, a doorman outside the Savoy move towards the guard and appears to plead with him to stop.
But the security guard continues with his sustained assault, launching himself into the air and stamping with both feet on the man’s upper body as he cowers on the floor.
The doorman in the top hat recoils in horror after watching the horrific moment, turning away from the pummelling.
Two onlookers, one with two dogs, come forward and seem to remonstrate with the guard, who finally stops hitting the man.
Christmas decorations cover the entrance of The Savoy, which is one of London’s most iconic hotels.

A spokesman for the Savoy Hotel told MailOnline the bald attacker hitting the other man was not a member of the Savoy staff.
The spokesman said the hotel had not been aware of the incident previously and that the unnamed guard was employed by a third-party security contractor.
Sun Online has contacted The Savoy Hotel for comment.
