A man ran over his ex-wife and her new boyfriend in the driveway of a police station while shocked police officers stood by and watched. Horrific footage shows the attack that left the boyfriend dead and the ex-wife fighting for her life in hospital.
The suspect, Zhang Chou, from Tianchang in East China’s Anhui Province, was reportedly furious that his recently divorced wife had already found a new boyfriend. Chou threatened to kill his estranged wife, 29-year-old Qin, if she continued to see her new lover, 38-year-old Min Lai.
After Chou’s death threats, Min suggested that Qin report Chou to authorities. But just as the two arrived at the police station, Chou mowed them down in his car.
Security footage from Tianchang City Public Security Bureau shows the moment Chou’s black car charges full speed into the back of Qin and Min and through the gate of the police station.
The impact threw Qin into the air, while Min was carried on the roof of Chou’s car for more than 20 metres before running him over.
Chou then exited his car and began kicking Min’s badly-injured body.
The angry ex-husband then ran down to Qin and he grabbed her body like a rag doll and proceeded to stamp on her and kick her.
Two men stood and watched and did not intervene as Chou returned to Min’s body to continue attacking him.
As Chou goes back to Qin he was finally subdued by two police officers.
Reports said Min died of his injuries and that Qin has been rushed to hospital in critical condition.
Chou was arrested and remains in custody as investigation continues.
