This stocky dentist and jujutsu black belt holder has reportedly subjected his pretty wife to a night-long torture session, completely disfiguring her face, after he announced on social media that he would give her a “special treatment”.
Heavyset dentist Marcelo Augusto Pereira, 41, nearly killed his wife of eight years, Tatiana, at their home in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo on Valentine’s Day.
Local media said Tatiana spent the whole night being tortured by her partner and only managed to escape after she called her mother for help when he left her alone for a short while.
The suspect, who has a prior criminal record, went on the run and is currently wanted by the police.
Before the incident, he took to social media to write: “Today my beloved partner gets a special treatment, a dental check-up.”
Tatiana’s face was left heavily swollen following the attack and Marcelo even bit her nose and pulled out clumps of her hair, according to local media.
She now finds it difficult to talk and eat, and revealed she will have to shave her head.
Tatiana believes Marcelo attacked her because he saw a message on her mobile phone, which he interpreted the wrong way.
She claimed that he waited for her to fall asleep before he began his brutal attack.
Marcelo, who has a black belt in Brazilian jujutsu, had been possessive and violent throughout the couple’s relationship, constantly threatening and attacking his wife, according to Tatiana’s daughter Isabela.
Isabela had reported her stepdad to the police two years ago for attacking her mother, for which he spent a fortnight in prison.
Tatiana had even taken out a restraining order against the suspect, though she chose to get back together with him despite the protective measure.
Isabela claimed that Marcelo would constantly pursue her mother, bringing her flowers and cards in a constant cycle of attacks and apologies.
Tatiana revealed he even had the gall to ask her for forgiveness following the brutal night-long attack and offer her some ointment for her bruised face.
She told local media: “He’s ill. He’s a psychopath.”
Reports said the first of the four complaints registered with the police against Marcelo was from his own mother who he allegedly attacked.
Tatiana is being treated in hospital for her injuries.
Isabela described her mother’s survival of the attack as a “second chance” from God.
