CCTV footage has emerged of a man driving into a couple outside a police station before emerging from the vehicle and proceeding to kick them as they lie injured on the ground.
According to Sina, the attack took place at around 10 a.m. on September 29 in Tianchang city, Anhui province. The victims, a female surnamed Qin and male surnamed Min, had just got out of a taxi which had stopped in front of the police station when a black car drove into them at high speed.
The car was driven by a man surnamed Zhang, former husband to Qin. The attack is thought to be a crime of passion given recent disputes between the pair, although few details have been released as to the history of their relationship.
While Qin survived the attack, owing to the severity of his injures Min was pronounced dead shortly after emergency services arrived. Zhang is being held in custody by police while an investigation takes place.
Despite the attack taking place outside a police station, neither the security guard on duty or bystanders in the vicinity chose to intervene as Zhang assaulted his victims after the horrific collision.
