Security cameras captured the ordeal
A taxi driver in Huancayo, Peru, intervened when he saw a couple arguing in a violent encounter.
The couple were intoxicated, and after the woman refused to follow the man, he beat her and tried to drag her across the pavement.
However, when the taxi driver saw what was happening, he threw a brick at the aggressive man’s head, allowing the woman to flee.
Security footage captured the tumultuous moments, before the attacker wobbled to the other side of the street and fell to the ground.
Firefighters and police officers went to the scene to attend to him, who after being examined was transferred to the Carrión hospital in the Peruvian town.
