(Scroll down for video) A traffic officer that was writing a traffic ticket suddenly got karate-kicked in the face by an angry driver.

The traffic was was karate-kicked in the head by a skinhead thug as he prepared to issue a parking ticket, according to reports in the news media.

Shocking CCTV footage shows how the agent was attacked after being approached by three men while he was writing a registration number. The kick was so strong that the agent fell down and had to be treated in a hospital.

The images show the three men who came to the agent as he points out the details of a car parked on a sidewalk over a double yellow line in Leicester. One man spits on officer's notebook as he walks past. The officer was also hit in the face with a pen.

Seconds later, one of the men a few steps away of the officer launched a nasty karate-kick to his head, knocking him to the ground and sending his hat flying. The three men then fled the scene, running to a nearby supermarket while passersby stopped to help the traffic officer.

The wounded man, in his thirties, was taken to Leicester Royal Infirmary and treated for severe bruising to his face and head. Police are looking for the three men who were behind the attack.
