It is a shocking moment that a “landlord” smashed shop windows with a hammer when the alleged rent dispute escalated into violence.
The footage shows two men armed with hammers smashing shop windows in west London on Monday afternoon.
A woman could be heard screaming inside a destroyed shop on Edgware Road when a mob of police arrived armed with batons.
Officers pulled the two handcuffed men out of a shop before putting them in the back of a police van.
The incident is believed to have taken place on a busy shopping street after a rent dispute escalated.
Police confirmed the arrest of three people at the scene.
Following the arrests, a woman in a yellow coat was seen shouting about horrific scenes in front of a crowded shop.
He claimed that the shop owners were behind the incident.
The Metropolitan Police said: “Police were called to a compound on Adware Road W2 shortly before 17.45hrs on Monday, August 30 to report criminal damage.
“Officers attended. Three people were arrested on suspicion of criminal damage. They have been taken into custody.”
This is not the first time tensions have risen between tenants and landlords.
In Andover, Hampshire, a tenant of Hell filled a house full of 8,000 cans of beer and rubbish – after telling the landlord that he had left “a little dirt.”
Cleaner Freddie Gallime Webb was given the task by his landlord to clean up the stomach mess when a one-year-old tenant left after paying unpaid rent and putting the flat in the trash.
Freddie was forced to spend about 30 hours in three days and was sick several times in the process as he went through horrible dirt.
The living room of the two-bedroom flat was full of empty beers, and the spiders swiped the boxes and picked them up in their nets.
The tenant sent a text message to the landlord saying he had “probably left something wrong” – 12 12,000 went out of the landlord’s pocket.
And last year, a landlord was accused of racial discrimination when he barred African tenants from renting out his property – because “they stink.”
