Incredible video footage has captured the moment a man walking along a street was drop-kicked to the ground by the animal.
The monkey can be seen running at speed behind the man, before jumping up and kicking him, dealing a powerful blow to the man’s back and knocking him to the ground.
The primate – deceptively stronger than it looks – then flees, pouncing onto a nearby car then escaping over a wall.
Stunned bystanders appear on the scene, clearly shocked by what they have just seen.
The victim, who was knocked flat onto his face, slowly stands up, evidently shaken by the ‘attack’.
