THIS is the chilling moment a man in a raincoat attacked a mum and child outside their front door in a scene straight out of a horror movie.
CCTV footage shows the man stalking his ex-wife and child in the hallway of an apartment block in China before attacking them.
The clip – which was shared on Twitter – shows the unsuspecting mum and young daughter returning home in the evening of July 6.
As they stand outside their apartment with the door open, a man a red coat suddenly runs down the stairs and violently grabs the woman and child and drags then inside.
More screaming can be heard from in the apartment as the door is slammed shut.
On July 12, cops in Shandong province said the man, whose surname is Zhan, had been arrested after his ex-wife, surnamed Jiang, reported the incident to police, according to Daily China.

The man slapped her in the face when she pushed him away, and up to eight more thugs piled up to punch and kick the woman and her pals.
