Police in Coventry are hunting for two thugs after an innocent fisherman was filmed being shoved into a lake.

The video, which was later published to YouTube, shows a man wearing a purple jacket and jeans creeping up on the fisherman and pushing him into the murky water.

His friend, who was recording the crime on his phone, can be heard laughing and encouraging his friend.

The thug in shot can also be seen smugly laughing and walking off, while the fisherman struggles to get out of the pond.

Inspector Johanna Comer of Coventry Police to the Mail Online that no one has admitted to the crime yet.

"At this stage no one has come forward to us and we would appeal to anyone who knows him or has any information to come forward and contact us," she said.

"It's unclear exactly when this happened but the video shows a number of people in the area at the time and we would ask anyone who witnessed what happened to call us on 101 as soon as possible."
