Terrified Kenny McSween was pounced on in the lobby and subjected to an horrific 20-minute attack in which a man pinned him down and gnawed his face.
The attack lasts so long that the attacker – thought to be a Spaniard – is seen taking his jacket off and wiping sweat from his forehead before carrying on the beating.
But when police arrived Kenny claims they handcuffed HIM – and let his attacker go.
Kenny, 38, says he still has “no idea” why the man launched his assault but claims police later told him he had mistaken the Brit for an intruder.
The DJ said: “I honestly thought he was going to kill me. I feel like I’ve gone 12 rounds with Mike Tyson.
“My face swelled up like a balloon and I was dripping with blood from where he bit me.
“The sound of him biting me still haunts me – he was growling like a wild animal.
“I have no idea why he did it. The police told me later he suspected I didn’t live there.
“But he went well beyond any reasonable use of force to detain me. Once he started punching me he didn’t stop until the police arrived.”
Kenny has been DJing in Ibiza for two years and this season has played in SWAG in Playa de Bossa and Soul City Ibiza.
He is a well-known face on the island’s music scene along with his partner Sian Edwards, who are known as the ‘Ken and Barbie’ of Ibiza.
But his idyllic life was shattered on September 20 when he was set upon in the reception area of the Palmera Apartment complex in San Antonio where he lived.
CCTV captures the attack starting at 6.50am and records 10 minutes of violence before the pair wrestle off-screen, where the assault continues for another ten minutes before police arrive.
Kenny claims he was initially accosted by the man – who told him he was a police officer – on his way into the complex but managed to get away.
“He approached me at the entrance to my apartment,” said Kenny. “He asked me what I was doing there and I said I live here.
“At that point he said he was an officer and pushed me against the wall. I managed to get away.”
But when he returned 10 minutes later to find out why he was attacked, he claims he was hit with an ‘extendable kosh’ which he saw rolling on the floor seconds after he was set upon.
The footage shows Kenny frantically trying to defend himself as his attacker unleashes a barrage of punches to his face and body.
At one point, he even bites Kenny’s forehead, leaving him with a huge bloody gash that needed seven stitches.
After three minutes a woman, who appears to be with the attacker, enters the lobby and starts picking up Kenny’s belongings which have spilled on to the floor.
Kenny claims that when officers arrived on the scene he was handcuffed and kept on the floor.
“They wouldn’t even give me a glass of water,” he claimed.
Kenny was taken to the local hospital in San Antonio where he was given seven stiches, X-rayed and given pain relief.
According to Kenny his attacker was allowed to go free after giving officers his details, and has not been arrested or charged with any offence.
Kenny has spoken to the Guardia Civil, the Policia Nacional, and the local authorities, but has not yet received any information about the investigation.
He is so scared for his safety he has moved back to London.
“It’s got so bad that I’ve had to return to the UK because I genuinely feared for my life.”
A British Embassy spokesman said: “We were informed of an incident in Ibiza involving a British national by a family member of theirs.
“Our staff were unable to speak to the individual directly as no contact details were provided but we are ready to provide assistance, if requested.”
The attack comes a few weeks after it was reported British police visited the island resort to help the Guardia Civil deal with investigations where British holidaymakers are involved in crime, whether as victims or offenders.
Guardia Civil has been approached for a comment.
