CCTV footage of the incident captured the man hitting a defenseless woman on the head without mercy.
“The man was beating his wife. She was crying and screaming. Then a passer-by knocked him down,” one witness stated.
Another said: “It was terrifying. The woman was yelling the place down. She was trying to protect herself. This kind of violence in unacceptable.”
The pair, who are believed to be divorced, had just attended a hearing at Istanbul Court of Justice when the assault occurred.
The man, identified as Mehmet T., was later arrested.
It is unclear where exactly the footage was taken.
