The chef of one of the local cafes brutally beat his female colleague half to death when she asked him not to come to work drunk.
The incident happened on 15th August, in the village of Sokoch, in the Yelizovsky District of Kamchatka Krai in Far Eastern Russia.
Dmitry Ryazanov, 41, a chef at a local cafe allegedly beat up the barmaid named only as Sofia after she reprimanded him for being drunk at work.
Everything that happened was caught on surveillance cameras.
CCTV footage shows Ryazanov first following his colleague to the café kitchen and arguing with her.
She can be heard asking him to leave.
But angry Ryazanov then hits her in the face, grabs her by the hair and throws Sofia to the floor.
Then he furiously kicks Sofia on the head, face and stomach.
A few moments later, another employee looks out of the door in the kitchen, but after hearing an angry “get out of here” from Ryazanov, she quickly retreats.
Ryazanov grabs two knives in his hands at once and begins to threaten the injured Sofia.
The employee who had been looking through the door earlier then reappears, but her begging to stop was ignored by the angry man.
Ryazanov beats Sofia for about three minutes before two other men run to the screams, and try to stop Ryazanov.
He then tells her: “What do you think, animal, someone will protect you? Don’t get me dirty, stupid!”
Local media reported that Sofia survived but was taken to hospital with serious injuries.
Ryazanov has been arrested and it was revealed he had previously been convicted of intentionally causing grievous bodily harm.
In 2005, cops said Ryazanov severely beat a woman near a café in Krasnodar.
According to the press service of the Investigative Committee for Kamchatka, the attacker was found and a criminal case was opened against him under part 3 of article 30, part 1 of article 105 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (attempted murder).
He is already being taken to the investigative committee by employees of the National Guard and the police.
He faces 6 to 15 years in prison.
The investigation is ongoing.
