A woman in Dallas is still shell-shocked after she was attacked by a naked man who dove through the sunroof of her moving car Friday.
The attack was actually caught on video by Marcus Payne who lives on the street where the incident took place. At first, WFAA-TV reported, Payne was filming the exposed man below, thinking it was a crazy sight.
It got even crazier when Payne captured the man jumping right through the open sunroof of the unidentified woman’s car and clawed at her violently.
“He jumped in my car and he started attacking me,” the victim told WFAA, asking that she not be named for safety reasons.
“He started choking me, pulling my hair, pulling my eyes, and I couldn’t do anything,” she continued. Her screams were heard on the footage taken of the attack.
Eventually, the car crashed, ultimately causing $3,000 worth of damage.
Dallas police officers were already on the scene when the attack occurred and pounced on the assailant, taking him to the hospital in handcuffs. WFAA reported that authorities think he might have been on drugs.
“I don’t know how much longer that attack would have lasted if they weren’t there,” the victim told the news station, choking up.
KDFW-TV identified the man based on a police report as 23-year-old Nicholas Dyll. The news station reported that prior to attacking the woman in the car, Dyll also went after a woman and her baby on the street, both of whom were not hurt.
Since the attack, the woman said she feels more aware of her surroundings and that it makes her more afraid, “like a prisoner.”
