The dramatic incident in broad daylight was recorded on a security camera and took place in the city of Zelenograd just outside the capital city Moscow in Russia.
In the video, a man can be seen smoking outside a block of flats when another man walks out of the building.
The man smoking then pulls out a knife and rams it into the other man’s chest. The victim tries to sprint away but trips and falls next to a car as the aggressor runs after him.
The thug, reportedly 44 years old but who was not named, repeatedly tries to stab the victim who uses his legs to defend himself on the ground.
The victim, 29, then tries to grab the blade and pulls the thug to the ground before sprinting away.
The aggressor then sprints after the victim who appears to escape as the thug stands by a car. The 29-year-old victim then runs back to grab his phone which had fallen out f his jacket as the aggressor watches on.
