A security camera caught the moment a guy hit an elderly lady in the chest as she walked along a street in Moldova, according to the footage. The city of Sinau, Moldova, was caught on a neighboring surveillance camera.
In the middle of the street, a random old lady was struck unconscious by a stranger.
After collapsing to the ground and losing consciousness, the elderly woman needed medical assistance.
The guy also struck a second victim, a 36-year-old female, who was also injured.
The event, which took place in Moldova’s capital city of Chisinau, was caught on video by a security camera next door and shared with the public.
It is seen in the video that the elderly woman walks past a beggar outside a shoe shop and gives him some money before continuing on her journey.
A woman in white top can also be seen heading the same direction as the attacker slowly walks toward them.
The man, who is carrying a black plastic bag, suddenly strikes the two women in their chests.
Stunned onlookers offered help to the two injured pedestrians as the man walked away.
