Behind her is a tall man, dressed in all black, as she walks forward – her pace quickens before she appears to hold her by the throat.

The woman lets out a series of blood-soaked screams as she is then dragged to the ground by the attacker, who is almost twice her size.

The man is then seen snatching something from his grip before moving rapidly in the opposite direction.

It comes amid calls for police to do more to protect women on Britain’s streets after police issued a stream of advice to women who felt they were in danger, including flagging off a bus Including showing.

Lynn Jenkins wrote: “Did no one come out or call the police? What’s happening in this country, the police have to be tougher.”

Tadg Sweeney said: “lived and grew up in East Ham, moved in 20 years ago, best thing I’ve ever done.

“I don’t recognize the place anymore, I had a great childhood there, but now I am raising children there.

“This place is like a war zone, if people aren’t taking out your catalytic converter, they’re going to stab you and rob you.”

And Fuzz Zam said: “How terrible to have a poor woman.”

The Metropolitan Police has been contacted for comment.
