Charlie Rudkin, 27, was brutally attacked by Tammy Goodfellow, 41, after she mistook him for somebody who had a fight with her teenage son in Hull.

A barefooted Goodfellow also dragged her husband Michael, 39, and son Joe, 17, into the fight which left Mr Rudkin, who suffers from paranoid schizophrenia, unconscious.

Disturbing footage of the assault shows how dad-of-four Mr Rudkin was wrestled to the floor by Goodfellow’s husband.

He held him in a chokehold before the woman leapt on top of him and repeatedly punched him in the face.

Mr Rudkin was strangled unconscious and was also kicked and stamped in the head.

Passers-by appeared to try and intervene in the brawl, which happened on July 27, 2018.

It was only when the victim’s pregnant partner arrived at the scene that Michael Goodfellow release the chokehold.

The victim was rushed to intensive care following the savage beating and was left on life support.

Goodfellow, who had downed 10 pints of ale before the attack, was sentenced to 12 months in prison after admitting assault occasioning actual bodily harm (ABH) at Hull Crown Court.

George, who was 16 at the time of the attack, was given a 12-month youth rehabilitation order, which includes activity and programme requirements.

Michael Goodfellow, who has two younger children, was given a six-month sentence, suspended for 12 months, and ordered to do 120 hours of unpaid work.

Speaking about the release of the CCTV, Mr Rudkin said he “did not deserve what happened”.

“Hopefully the footage will put all the rumours to bed that I started anything physical – I don’t deserve what happened to me, nobody does,” he said.

“I don’t feel like any of them got a big enough sentence – the judge took too much pity on her [Tammy’s] husband by giving him a suspended sentence just because he had kids to look after.

“Where is the justice? They could have taken my life away from me, and I’m still not right after the attack. I get headaches and worry about stuff – I get paranoid and won’t go out on a night anymore.

“I just hope that from watching this CCTV, people will realise how serious the attack was and that the city finally gets to see what happened, and I hope it opens up people’s eyes to how serious an assault can be.”

Charlie has also revealed how he was forced to move to get away as he was  “fed up with everybody was saying”.
