This is the moment a burly 19-year-old thug drags his girlfriend along the side of a road by her hair.
The incident was filmed on Road 83 in Hungary and was shared on Facebook by netizen ‘Erdei Attila’ where it has been viewed 765,000 times.
In the footage, a heavyset man in a vest is seen dragging a woman along the roadside by her hair in front of passing motorists.
While she struggles to release herself from the suspect’s grip, the couple cross the road and she is heard screaming as oncoming cars nearly hit her but keep on driving.
The burly man drags her down a side street where she falls to the ground, but he grabs her hair again and continues to pull her along the track.
‘Erdei Attila’ commented that several motorists on the busy main road slowed down to see what was happening, but no one bothered to help her.
Local media said the woman appeared to urinate herself at one point in the footage although it is unclear whether a wet patch appeared on her skirt when she momentarily sat on the grass.
The local police have confirmed that they are investigating the incident and have arrested a 19-year-old man from the village of Dabrony in the western Hungarian county of Veszprem.
The investigation is ongoing.
