(DALLAS) — Dallas police are investigating an alarming attack that was caught on video involving a naked man who dove arms-first into the sunroof of a car and assaulted the female driver.
Marcus Payne caught the incident — which took place Friday near the corner of Zang Boulevard and Oakenwald Street in Oak Cliff — on video from his apartment balcony.
It shows a man undressing in the street, but the truly shocking part is what happened next.
The naked man jumped into the sunroof of a woman’s car as she came to a stop sign.
“A naked man jumped in [the car],” the woman, who has not been identified, told ABC News affiliate WFAA-TV. “He jumped in my car and he started attacking me.”
The woman added, “He started choking me, pulling my hair, pulling my eyes, and I couldn’t do anything.”
The car eventually swerved to the side and crashed, giving police officers the opportunity to arrest the man and take him to the hospital.
“I don’t know how much longer that attack would have lasted if [the police] weren’t there,” the woman said.
According to WFAA, the victim’s car endured $3,000 worth of damage — but the emotional toll endures.
“I feel more afraid, more aware of everything around me … like a prisoner,” she said.
Cpl. Senior Sherry Jeffrey, of the Dallas Police, said that charges have not yet been filed. Detectives are still interviewing witnesses.
