A spokesman for delivery service has said it is taking the incident 'very seriously'

An Amazon worker has been filmed kicking and punching a wheelchair-bound building manager in a West London tower block.

The fight broke out after Ramin Razzaghi confronted the delivery driver at 112 Notting Hill Gate over where parcels are supposed to be left.

CCTV footage from the incident on February 15 showed the delivery driver being let into the building.

He proceeded to leave a set of large parcels on a desk but Razzaghi responded by grabbing his carrier bag.

The pair exchanged blows but things turned even more violent in the lobby.

Razzaghi was punched as the delivery driver attempted to leave the building.

He was then violently dragged from his wheelchair.

However, Razzaghi refuses to give up by clinging onto his foot as he tumbled onto the street outside.

A second man intervened to free the delivery driver from his clutches, with one pushing Razzaghi back to the floor as he attempted to get to his feet.

He proceeded to repeatedly land blows against the building manager while he was on the floor.

The Amazon worker then goes back into the tower block to pick up some of the items he dropped during the altercation.

Razzaghi told The Daily Mail: “I have been left emotionally, physically and mentally drained. I have injured my ribs and my jaw. I just ask myself 'Why?'.”

He added: “I stopped the man before he came in and asked him, 'Could you please take the parcels up to the individual doors?'

“The man nicely agreed to this, and I then let him in the two front doors of building. Suddenly as you can see on the CCTV, he left the parcels in the lobby.

“I then tried to stop the postman by grabbing his bag and I told him 'give me your bag now' so I can put the parcels back'.

“Next thing, he threw the bag into my face and walked out swearing. He had a bad mouth on him.

“He then tried to get me off him but I told him 'You know what I will hold you here and call the police'.

“As soon as I said that, he became aggressive. The only thing I could do is hold onto his legs to stop him from leaving.

“The conversation dragged outside, and I was still holding onto his legs.

“Someone came up behind me and tried pulling me off. I thought he just wanted to separate me from the Amazon worker but as soon as I let go, this man started beating me up on the floor.”

A Met Police spokesman said: “Police continue to investigate the circumstances of an assault in Notting Hill Gate, W11.

“The incident happened at around 1.50pm on Thursday, February 15, when an altercation occurred between two men, one of whom was in a wheelchair.

“A 35-year-old man intervened and assaulted the man in the wheelchair; the second man left the scene and enquiries are ongoing to locate him.

“London Ambulance Service attended; the man who was assaulted was not seriously injured.

“The 35-year-old man was arrested and subsequently charged with ABH.

“Enquiries, including analysing CCTV footage, are ongoing. Anyone who has any information that could help with the investigation is asked to contact police on 101 quoting CAD 3763/15Feb.”

A spokesman for Amazon added: “We're taking this matter very seriously and we're investigating with our delivery service provider.”
