The short clip was originally published on Snapchat by a user called @mobdoddy and has since been shared across social media.

The video begins with the thug walking up to the soft drinks machine in the restaurant, he then grabs a cup and pours a beverage into it.

The mother and her crying young child can be seen close by and the son is clearly frightened and clutches his mum tightly as he sobs.

The mum is left drenched in the beverage and she grabs her son even tighter to protect him.

As the incident continues, the individual filming is heard gasping in amusement. The Snapchat user – known as @moboddy – then turns his camera around to show his grinning face which he clutches with his hand.

The video then cuts to show the mother trying to walk over to confront the assailant and the man filming the video, as her son continues to weep.

Despite the son being clearly distressed the Snapchat user continues laughing and humorously shouting "Oh sh*t! Oh sh*t!"

After the incident, @moboddy filmed himself and the assailant proudly posing to the camera.

The user known as @moboddy proudly points at the assailant. He gloats to the camera: "Can you imagine that this guy went at her three times fam! He is and then does a gesture to suggest that he is crazy".

The video then cuts to an end.
