The pair can be seen awkwardly wrestling with each other as the man appears to try to leave the scene.

‘You cannot hit and run my car, otherwise you will be in big trouble,’ the angry motorist said as he grappled with the motorcyclist.

The rider continued to try and turn his motorbike on but was repeatedly blocked by the irate driver.

The motorcyclist tried to compromise with him and said he would give him his licence details if he let him turn the bike on.

He then desperately pleaded with a person out of view to help him while he struggled to turn the key.

‘Oi cuz help me… help me…’ the man can be heard telling someone.

Another man standing behind the pair then intervened and told the motorcyclist to ‘just wait for the police to get here’. 

The scuffle was witnessed by a number of bystanders who watched on in shock from a cafe on the other side of the road.

The footage ends abruptly as the men were still scuffling on the street.
