The victims of a brutal bashing have pleaded with people to step in and lend a hand instead of filming on their phones.

Todd Allsop, 22, was dragged from his car and beaten unconscious by a group of strangers in Northbridge, Perth, on Saturday night. 

Mr Allsop, who was taken to the Royal Perth Hospital with suspected spinal injuries,  said no one stepped in to help and instead filmed the attack on their mobile phones.

‘That’s what hurts me about people now, is that their first reaction is to grab out their phone and to film it,’ he told Seven News.

Mr Allsop’s twin brother was also attacked, but escaped with less serious injuries.   

Western Australia Premier Mark McGowan used his standing to call for change this week. 

‘It seems to be part of the modern age, but if you can safely assist someone in need, my advice is you should do it,’ he said. 

Western Australia Police are still investigating the brutal Saturday night attack.
