A young Russian man who battered an older woman to the ground and then stamped on her head and beat her until she was unconscious while his friend videoed it has defended the action saying she deserved it for insulting him.
A video show the unidentified man, who was apparently tracked down by journalists but has not yet been identified by police, running up to the woman and bashing her to the ground. In a second video he then stamps on her head until she stops moving, and then bends down to punch her several times in the face while his friend films the incident.
Police were made aware of the fact that the video was circulating on social media sites and confirmed that the incident had happened on Volkov Street in the central Russian city of Nizhni Novgorod. They said they had launched an investigation to try and track down the attacker and the person who made the video.
And although police claimed they had not yet identified those behind the incident the pair were apparently contacted by journalists and showed no remorse for the violent assault.
They said that the woman had come out of the house and they alleged she had made a comment under her breath referring to homeless people, which they took to referring to them and they had regarded it as a massive insult.
The attacker told local media: "I just lost it. I went crazy. I didn't think what I was doing."
Early reports indicated that the woman had died but it was later revealed that she had been hospitalised and was expected to recover. A hospital spokesman told local television that the woman, not named, had no immediate relatives and lived alone, and had no idea why she had been attacked by the youngsters.
