Two men were spotted walking naked down a London street in broad daylight after allegedly attacking a cyclist.

The Metropolitan Police were called on Thursday afternoon, September 9, to a report of two men "attacking people in the street" on Walworth Road in Elephant and Castle, South London.

One was reported to be naked and the other just in underpants.

Baffling footage shows the two men, aged 32 and 26, walking across the traffic lights at Elephant and Castle before jumping and knocking a cyclist off his bike.

The force said in a statement: "Two people were found suffering from minor injuries. Both said they had been attacked by two men who then walked off.

"One was allegedly pushed off his bike and the other assaulted.

"The suspects, aged 32 and 26, were located and arrested following a struggle on suspicion of indecent exposure and ABH.

"Both men were taken to hospital under Section 3 of the Mental Health Act and later returned to custody. They were then released under investigation."

The victim, who was knocked from his bike and has asked not to be named, told the MailOnline: "I went down and I got back up and then fell over again and actually the traffic all the traffic went by and were like oh my god what are they terrorists or something?

"When I went to the other side of the road to speak to the guy who had also been beaten up literally police came from every single direction, even unmarked cars."

Eye-witnesses took to Twitter and Instagram to share the odd sight, one shared a photo of the two men from behind with the caption: "Naked man in Elephant and Castle."

Whilst another commented saying: "I saw the same thing. Very, very odd."

Another user videoed the two men from his car and tweeted the footage with the caption: "I do love South London."
