This is the moment a man tries to kiss a semi-conscious young woman on the pavement before slamming her against a wall and stealing her belongings.
The incident took place on 7th July 2019 in the city of Rosario in the north-eastern Argentine province of Santa Fe, and the CCTV footage has been released by the local police now to find out more information on the suspect, who remains at large.
In the clip, the man is seen dragging the semi-conscious woman to some steps where he lays her down.
As she lies on the ground, the man looks around and then tries to kiss the 35-year-old woman, who just about manages to push him away.
She then gingerly gets to her feet and the man helps her walk along the pavement.
However, he then turns back and slams the woman against a wall before apparently kicking her in the head and stealing her belongings.
According to local media, a resident found the unconscious victim on the pavement around 45 minutes after the incident and called the emergency services.
The unnamed woman was hospitalised for four days with a broken nose and breathing problems, according to reports.
The police quizzed witnesses and checked the CCTV footage in the area, however, they have been unable to find out any further information on the suspect.
Prosecutor Alejandra Raigal confirmed that the investigation is ongoing and hopes that the release of the video footage will bring forward results.
