Shocking footage shows the moment a father smashes his ex’s windscreen and side window to get his daughter out of the backseat of her car. The video shows the violent altercation which is believed to have taken place in a car park in the city of Naberezhnye Chelny in central Russia’s Republic of Tatarstan.
A friend of the mother, who is sitting in the passenger seat, films the raging dad standing in front of the vehicle to stop it from driving away. As the footage begins the man can be seen at the front of the car banging his fist violently against the windscreen. Speaking in Russian, the mother repeatedly screams at her ex: ‘Go away!’ to which he replies, ‘I will not go, open the door!’ The man then appears to get something from his pocket and violently hammer at the windshield causing it to crack as the woman revs the engine and tries to drive away.
The small child can be heard screaming crying form the back as the father goes to the side window of the car and smashes it before reaching in to unlock the back door. The two women scream at him as he opens the rear passenger door and scoops up the crying young girl before marching off with her in his arms. According to local media, the former spouses have been embroiled in a custody battle for some time and have struggled to reach an agreement.
