And the woman shouted to the camera: ‘Why are you running away? You should defend the child and not run away.’

Next footage showed the furious woman turning to a random car and hitting it hard with her right hand while still holding the knife.

‘The man started filming her on his smartphone. It was obvious that he feared to approach her.’
