A woman security guard at an apartment complex got a rude awakening when she was whacked on the head with a hammer by another woman.
The shocking attack took place in La Cruz de Huanacaxtla, a small fishing village on the Pacific coast in the Mexican state of Nayarit.
The attack that reports say involved an attacker with problems happened on 28th November, but the footage has only surfaced now.
The CCTV footage was filmed at the Punta Pelicanos condominiums, a condo complex, and quickly made the rounds on social media. It shows the female security guard napping inside what appears to be a booth when suddenly a woman wearing a cap walks in and begins attacking her with a hammer, landing a heavy blow right on her temple.
The attacker manages to land a few more blows with the victim trying to shield herself as best she can before the security guard starts fighting back, kicking wildly at the woman with the hammer.
The security guard can be seen putting her hands above her head to protect herself and keeping her attacker at a distance with her legs while still seated.
The attacker tries to get more blows in, apparently landing one as her victim gets to her feet and chases her away.
Neither of the people in the video has been named, but the security guard was reportedly taken to the General Hospital of Zone No. 3 by car with serious injuries, according to local media.
A complaint was also filed with the local prosecutor’s office.
It is currently unclear if the attacker was arrested what her motive was, with local media reporting that the suspect had issues with her mental health and had been loitering at the condo complex for a few days.
