Shocking video captured the moment when a man was attacked by protestors outside of a liquor store in Baltimore.

Shocking video has emerged of a Baltimore man being attacked and stomped on by protestors.

Violent protests and extensive looting erupted across Baltimore on Monday following the funeral of Freddie Grey, with National Guard troops being deployed to Baltimore in the wake of the violence.

Baltimore resident Joe Talaiver uploaded the above 20 second video of footage shot by a WBAL news helicopter to Twitter, shot around 4 p.m. on Monday. The footage depicted protestors outside of Uptown Liquors in the city. In the video, one protestor suddenly punches a man standing outside the store, causing him to fall immediately to the ground.

The victim can then be seen lying motionless, as other protestors begin to crowd around him, with one appearing to even stomp on the man.

Users on Twitter questioned what happened to the man.

Twitter user Justin K then stated the man was carried off to safety.

Talaiver later clarified on Twitter that he was not sure if the man who was attacked was the owner of the store.

Fifteen officers were injured in the protests on Monday, with 27 arrests being made, according to ABC News.
