Kebab shop proprietors brutally beat a suspected burglar.

According to investigators, three men unleashed a "barbaric" attack and carried a man suspected of being a burglar down the street before June 12, 2020.

Asmat Khan, 33, approached the victim, Adrian Perry, standing outside Victoria Kebabs in Nottingham, believing Perry had been involved in a break-in earlier in the day at the takeaway.

Khan, his brother Mohammed Khan, 25, and Zafar Ahmed, 35, pulled Perry into the shop, reports said.

Perry was assaulted even further when the security shutters were closed. Still, the police said this phase of the attack was "too disturbing" to show.

As Perry lay on the floor, Ahmed could be seen attacking him with a plastic cone.

Throughout the assault, Perry curled up, his arms covering his head, and he made no move to retaliate or flee the onslaught.

According to Nottinghamshire Live, Asmat Khan had been questioning Perry and photographing him on his phone when a witness noticed the ruckus and phoned the officers.

When cops came, one of the males stated that "he burgled the shop."

Perry, who refused to assist with Nottinghamshire Police, was left with "serious" injuries, including fractures to his eye socket, cheekbone, jaw, and forearm.

Judge Steven Coupland sentenced each defendant to two years in prison, half of which they will serve and the other half on probation.

The incident was characterized as "barbaric" by Detective Inspector Danny Johnstone of Nottinghamshire's criminal investigation department, while the judge questioned why they hadn't just called the police if they felt anything was wrong.

The victim was treated in hospital after suffering broken bones, including a broken eye socket. The psychological impact will stay with him forever, he said per an online tabloid.

"These three men have proven that they are capable of organised violence which goes against every fibre of our being," Johnstone said.

Beyond expression, the suspects continued to assault and beat their victim while he lay defenseless on the floor.

"I'd like to thank the member of the public who rightly reported the suspicious nature in which the victim was dragged into the shop to Nottinghamshire Police. I fear, that if they hadn't, this incident would have had a much different ending," Johnstone said.
