This terrifying footage shows the moment a man is run over after a woman is seen pummeling the windscreen of the same car with her shoe.
The video is thought to have been filmed on Saturday night at around 9pm in the Biggs Market area, in Newcastle City Centre.
It begins with a Ford Focus, sitting in the middle of the road with the doors open as a woman bends down to remove her shoe.
Suddenly two men leap in the vehicle and the woman starts hammering the windscreen with her shoe, in front of shocked revellers.
The footage starts with the car in the middle of the road as the woman bends down to take off her shoe
She then starts hitting the windscreen multiple times before the car pulls away

As the woman strikes the car with her sixth blow, the driver accelerates, sending her flying as she grips the car handle.
The car rapidly reverses and another man tries to get into the car and begins chasing it down the road.
Suddenly the black car stops and begins to reverse back up the road as the woman halfheartedly attempts to hit the car with her shoe again.
The motor vehicle then drives into the man, knocking him from his feet and into a road sign.
It is not clear what started the incident or if the individuals involved know each other.
