This is the moment a man allegedly stabs his ex-wife several times in front of their son after trying to lure the young lad away.
The incident was filmed on Volgogriy Prospekt Street in the western Russian capital Moscow and was later shared on social media where it has been viewed over 140,000 times.
According to local media, 27-year-old Gurban, originally from Uzbekistan, waited for his ex-wife, identified as 28-year-old Aynur, and their five-year-old son in the car park of her home.
When he spotted the pair, he approached them and allegedly tried to lure the boy away.
In the footage, Aynur is seen leading her towards their home as Gurban follows behind them.
He is seen briefly talking with the boy before Aynur arrives on the doorstep of her home.
Before she can open the door, Gurban reacts angrily and allegedly appears to stab the woman several times before she manages to run away.
The suspect then leads the young boy away by his hand, but he sprints back to his mum.
When the coast is clear, they run back to their home and Aynur is seen unlocking the door in a hurry.
According to local media, she has been hospitalised in a serious condition.
Reports said that the couple divorced three years ago after years of marriage.
Gurban was said to be a kind, loving husband before the birth of their son, with Aynur adding: “Then he stopped bringing money home and ended up in prison.”
She also said that he has two convictions under his belt, including one for theft.
Local media said he tried to snatch their son in similar circumstances about a year ago.
While his mum recovers in hospital, the five-year-old is reportedly staying with his maternal grandmother and he said he hates his father for ‘hurting his mother’.
The investigation is ongoing. The suspect has reportedly not yet been apprehended.
