Alarming footage of baseball bat attack on car with child in back seat

Alarming footage has emerged of five men attacking a car with metal baseball bats while a man and his young son were inside.

The five masked offenders can be seen smashing the windows, bonnet, and doors of the silver BMW while the car is stuck in traffic.

The video was recorded on Saturday evening (local time) on Queen's park Rd in Blackburn, Lancashire, UK.

Police say they have arrested a 19-year-old man involved in the incident, which is being treated as a "targeted attack". They are now searching for the other assailants.

The driver and his five-year-old son both sustained minor injuries in the attack.
