In the first clip, the stocky man is seen repeatedly licking the screaming woman’s face on a busy pavement.
Several onlookers are heard laughing as the shrieking victim drops to the ground to escape the man’s tight hold.
He then high-fives an onlooker and says: “In the end, she’s just a woman.”
The victim kicks out at the man, and he turns to the camera and says: “In the end, this is all women who act cool for being part of a sub-culture really are.”
The second video shows the suspect being wrestled to the ground by several arresting cops.

There have been no further updates on whether the offender has been charged by the authorities.
Netizens’ comments included: “How disgusting”, “This should count as attempted rape” and “watching this sends a chill down my spine”.
