In a matter of seconds, a man was attacked and thrown to the ground by a very cheeky – and violent – monkey.

CCTV footage emerged of the incident, which appears to be in India, though reports have not been verified.

The monkey is seen racing up to the man, before jumping up on his back and drop-kicking him. The startled man swiftly falls to the ground.

The primate quickly flees the scene by pouncing onto a nearby wall, but instead of leaving the area, it continues to watch the commotion below.

It’s not the first time a human was involved in monkey business. Footage emerged in 2015 of a young man in Shimla, India, giving the finger to a hot-tempered monkey who subsequently knocked him to the ground.

Shimla has become notorious for aggressive monkeys, who are known to rob tourists and locals.
