This is the moment an alleged sex attacker is sent fleeing like a coward when the brave sleeping woman he appears to sexually assault wakes up and chases him away.
This chilling footage shows a pervert spotting a hotel receptionist asleep behind the front desk before proceeding to grope her and cover her mouth to muffle any screams.
The suspect, who has since been arrested, loitered in the reception area awhile before making his move on the morning of 26th August, the victim later revealed.
CCTV video from the establishment in the city of Yiwu, which is in East China’s Zhejiang Province, shows the male suspect walking into the lobby at just before 5am local time.
He finds the staff member asleep behind the front desk and, less than three minutes later, is seen walking up the resting woman and putting his hands on her body.
The startled woman wakes up with a fright and begins fighting the suspect, who puts his hand over her mouth in a bid to muffle her screams.
She manages to kick her attacker in the face and scares him off, the video shows.
The clip ends with the receptionist deciding to give chase after recovering from the ordeal.
The unnamed victim told police: “He loitered in the hotel for a long time and then came to touch me when he saw me alone.”
According to reports, the suspect was caught the same day and detained for sexual harassment.
It is unclear whether he has been sentenced to any jail time.
