The door suddenly opens and the topless man leaps out, falling onto the tarmac due to the momentum.
However, apparently unharmed, he gets up and runs off in front of the filming motorist behind the ambulance.
According to local media, the unnamed man threatened to jump off the roof of the city’s Vladimirsky farmer’s market where he was intercepted by officials and bystanders.
In another clip posted on Facebook and viewed 44,000 times, he is seen fighting with one man on the rooftop as others climb up to their position to assist.
At one point, he appears to try to pull the man onto the slope to make him fall off.
At the end of the video, at least four men manage to restrain him.
According to local media, the local authorities are still trying to track him down.
The investigation continues.
