This is the shocking moment a TV presenter who specialises in uncovering criminals was ambushed and attacked while driving his car.

Vladislav Chizhov, 45, the presentor of the Reshala (Solver) show on Russia's Che channel, was driving home in the capital city of Moscow.

Suddenly, an SUV car pulled out in front of him and stopped, blocking Mr Chizhov's vehicle, and the driver got out and came over to the TV presenter.

Mr Chizhov opened his window to see what he wanted and the man tried to punch him in the face. Mr Chizhov then jumped out of his car to defend himself.

His attacker slipped on the snow-covered road but two other man got out of the other car.

One knocked the TV presenter to the ground while the other smashed his windscreen with a crowbar.

The incident was caught on camera on Mr Chizhov's dashcam and by a woman passenger in his car who filmed it with her smartphone.

The woman, who can be heard screaming for help in the background, was clearly terrified by the ordeal and she was in tears by the time the clip ended.

Mr Chizhov, who suffered a broken collarbone, said later: "Everything is under control, I know these idiots, we will talk in the future. The only thing I regret is that I wasn’t alone."

The clip is proving popular on video-sharing platforms where users were divided into those who thought it was a revenge attack by criminals featured in the presenter's show and those who thought it was all a publicity stunt.

Netizen 'Florit Tyrlon' commented: "Hold on, we are with you", but 'Aleks Su' countered: "This is a 100 percent set up."
