Z.P., believed to be the taxi’s driver, then sprints towards her and grabs her hands from the vehicle.
He then forcefully shoves the topless woman and she is sent crashing to the ground, landing with her legs on the road as the driver shouts at her.
She can be seen lying on the ground as the driver gets back in the car and he then drives away. She can then be seen sitting up with dirt on her shoulder as passersby look on.
Stefanovska told local media that she had taken a taxi ride and the taxi driver started to insult her when she wanted to break a 1,000-MKD (14-GBP) banknote to pay for the service.
She said: “He said I was a drug addict and to leave the car. And because I was nervous I grabbed the windscreen wiper to scare him. He pushed me and I fell to the ground.”
She said she was transferred to a hospital with injuries to her arms and back, adding that she will ask the attacker to be held responsible.
It is unclear why the woman was half-naked during the incident.
The incident has been reported to the police and those involved have been questioned. No arrests have been reported and the investigation is ongoing.
The video has been widely shared on social media leaving netizens shocked.
Netizen ‘Skitnikot’ commented: “He slammed her on the pavement and left her, in a normal country you’d end up in prison for this.”
While ‘Dzeki’ added: “I understand that she is a woman, but if she started breaking my car she would go through something worse, whatever the reason is.”
And ‘Daniel Anastasoff’ wrote: “Considering the location of the footage… It is probably about a prostitute…”
