This is the moment an angry dad punches a man in the face seconds after he tried to force himself on his 15-year-old daughter in the lift.
The incident was filmed in a lift in a block of flats on Krylov Street in the city of Surgut in the Russian region of Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug at about 10pm on Sunday, 2nd January.
In the CCTV footage of the incident, the 27-year-old suspect is seen staring at the girl in the lift before speaking to her and apparently leaning in for a kiss.
The teen nudges the man away with her elbow. However, he steps closer and appears to continue talking to the apparently nervous girl.
The man is seen forcing himself on the young victim again, but luckily, the lift stops and the doors open. The teen then manages to push the man off her and walk away.
Seconds later, a heavyset man in a blue jacket appears and punches the suspect in the face before dragging him out of the lift by the scruff of his neck.
The man, reportedly the girl’s father, seems to hit the suspect at least one more time in the apartment block’s corridor as the video ends.
According to the local police, the suspect was arrested on Monday, 3rd January, and a criminal case has been opened against him for the attempted rape of a minor.
The police probe continues.
