The hooded thug then grabs a carton of milk off the ground, unscrews the cap and douses the defenceless victim in it. 

He puts his hands up to try to protect himself and stands up, but the liquid lands on his head and seeps down his clothes as he cries out.

The attacker walks away with the rough sleeper’s shoes after smashing him in the face with the empty bottle.

The gang appear to have posted the footage on Snapchat, where it circulated on Saturday night.

Volunteer David Hedley told the Yorkshire Evening Post : ‘I’ve spoken to parents and taken down the video – it had thousands of shares in a few minutes and went a bit crackers.

‘It’s despicable behaviour. Our outreach will be passing Briggate and we will look out for this victim.’

A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said: ‘Although the police have not received any direct reports in relation to this incident, enquiries have been carried out by the multi-agency Safer Leeds Street Support Team that have resulted in the victim being traced.

‘He has been spoken to by an officer today (14/1) and does not want to report any offences or assist in identifying those involved, who are known to him.

‘There appears to be a background to the incident and the victim has not been randomly targeted.

‘The police, council and a range of partner agencies continue to work closely together to safeguard and support vulnerable street users to help them move into accommodation, access appropriate services and move away from street life and the risks this brings.’
