This is the moment a woman who allegedly stabbed her husband seven times apparently tries to use puddles to scrub herself clean after having already stripped off her clothes.
The incident was filmed near the central market in the city of Taganrog in the south-western Russian region of Rostov Oblast and the footage was later widely shared on social media.
The videos show the woman, identified as Olesya U., who has already thrown away her clothing and is seen standing in the road using puddles to try and clean herself. the dashboard camera footage shows her repeatedly bending over, scooping up water and splashing onto her face and rubbing it over her body, flicking her long blonde hair back over her shoulders.
At one point in a separate video, she even lies down and rolls on the ground in one large muddy puddle as if she’s trying to rub herself clean.
According to local media, the police needed 15 minutes to capture the naked woman before then taking her to a nearby station.
Minutes before being filmed washing herself in the puddle, Olesya had reportedly stabbed her husband seven times.
Local media said the man’s wounds were not deep and did not pose a serious threat to his life but he remains in hospital where he is under close supervision.
The couple has a young child together and an investigation into her behaviour was continuing.
Netizen ‘Rexton’ said: “This looks so dramatic. They would have been better off calling for an ambulance right away.”
‘Svistokin’ commented: “Crazy how she ended up behaving like that.”
