CCTV shows the sickening moment a gang of thugs repeatedly stamp on a man’s head at a London tube station, leaving him with permanent brain injuries.
Ali Ali, Gessica Goti, Mohamed Abdulle, 22, and Fiona Abdillahi, 18, launched a brutal attack on two 40-year-old men at Oxford Circus Tube station.
Goti, 22, hit one of the men on the platform, who pushed her back, before Ali smashed him over the head.
Ali, 20, hit him with a large glass bottle. When the victim collapsed and fell to the floor, the group began kicking and stamping on his head.
The shocking attack is just the latest ultra-violent incident in London, where even experienced detectives say they are shocked by the growing ferocity of murders and assaults in the city.

Police believe the fight was sparked when one of the group ‘bumped into’ one of the men on the platform, sparking a row which turned violent when Goti threw a punch.
The rest of the group then set upon the man, who fell to the floor and was punched and stamped on.
He was put in a coma for five days and left with life-changing brain injuries after the assault, on November 5, 2017.
The other victim was bottled to the ground by Ali and Abdulle, before the group fled, leaving him with facial injuries and a laceration to the back of the head.
The group were sentenced to eight years in prison after their first victim said his ‘life is over’.
In a victim impact statement which was read out in court, the first victim said: ‘My old life is over after this incident.’
Ali, of Islington, was found guilty of one count of GBH and one count of violent disorder at Blackfriars Crown Court on December 19.
He was sentenced on January 25 to four years in prison for GBH, and three years for violent disorder to run concurrently.

DC Paul Burbridge said: ‘This was an incredibly violent and unnecessary attack, and the victim is lucky to be alive.
‘Regardless, the rest of his life will now be effected by the serious injuries he sustained at the hands of these aggressive young people.
‘I am pleased that the jury saw fit to convict them, and of the assistance provided by the general public in identifying the perpetrators so they could be brought before the courts.
‘I hope this serves as a clear reminder to people that we absolutely will not tolerate any form of violence on the rail network.’
