THIS is the chilling moment a sex fiend forced a helpless woman down a deserted road to rape her in the middle of the night.
Surveillance footage captured the vile bloke pushing the terrified victim towards an isolated spot in Cascavel, southern Brazil.
The 28-year-old woman can be seen struggling as the monster wraps her in a bear hug from behind, ensuring she cannot flee.
She is believed to have been walking to work in the early hours of August 6 when she was ambushed by the suspect.
Just minutes after she was shoved towards the secluded area and allegedly raped, a police patrol car drove by.
The brave woman managed to scream for help, alerting the passing cops with her screams.
The Municipal Guard said the man, 35, fled the scene after spotting the officers but left his rucksack full of possessions behind.
They tracked the suspect down after rifling through his belongings and headed to his address to arrest him.
According to the force, they were instead met by the suspect’s wife, who told them her husband had nipped out but had not yet returned.
He then handed himself in the following day at the local police station and reportedly admitted the rape.
The Municipal Guard said the man is known to authorities after having several previous run-ins with the law.
They released the disturbing footage of him luring his victim down the desolate road on August 9 during their initial investigation.
The force later confirmed that they had arrested a 35-year-old ma in connection with the alleged rape.
The suspect’s name was not released.
It is not clear if he was remanded in custody.
