Jujitsu monster ‘bit sleeping wife’s nose and tortured her for hours in brutal attack over a text message’
A JUJITSU monster allegedly bit his sleeping wife's nose and tortured her for hours in a brutal attack over a text message.
Heavyset dentist Marcelo Augusto Pereira, 41, allegedly nearly killed his wife of eight years, Tatiana, at their home in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Valentine’s Day.
Local media said Tatiana spent the whole night being tortured by her partner and only managed to escape after she called her mother for help when he left her alone for a short while.
The suspect, who has a prior criminal record, went on the run and is wanted by cops.
Before the incident, he took to social media to write: “Today my beloved partner gets a special treatment, a dental check-up.”
Tatiana’s face was left heavily swollen following the attack and Marcelo even bit her nose and pulled out clumps of her hair, according to local media.
She now finds it difficult to talk and eat, and revealed she will have to shave her head.
Tatiana believes Marcelo attacked her because he saw a message on her mobile phone which he wrongly interpreted.
She claimed that he waited for her to fall asleep before he began his brutal attack.
Marcelo, who has a black belt in Brazilian jujutsu, had been possessive and violent throughout the couple’s relationship, constantly threatening and attacking his wife, Tatiana’s daughter Isabela claimed.
Isabela had reported her stepdad to cops two years ago for attacking her mother, for which he spent a fortnight in prison.
Tatiana had even taken out a restraining order against the suspect, though she chose to get back together with him despite the protective measure.
Where can you get help?
Woman’s Aid has this advice for victims and their families:
- Always keep your phone nearby.
- Get in touch with charities for help, including the Women’s Aid live chat helpline and services such as SupportLine.
- If you are in danger, call 999.
- Familiarise yourself with the Silent Solution, reporting abuse without speaking down the phone, instead dialing “55”.
- Always keep some money on you, including change for a pay phone or bus fare.
- If you suspect your partner is about to attack you, try to go to a lower-risk area of the house – for example, where there is a way out and access to a telephone.
- Avoid the kitchen and garage, where there are likely to be knives or other weapons. Avoid rooms where you might become trapped, such as the bathroom, or where you might be shut into a cupboard or other small space.

Isabela claimed that Marcelo would constantly pursue her mother, bringing her flowers and cards in a constant cycle of attacks and apologies.
Tatiana revealed he even had the gall to ask her for forgiveness following the brutal night-long attack and offer her some ointment for her bruised face.
She told local media: “He’s ill. He’s a psychopath.”
Reports said the first of the four complaints registered with the police against Marcelo was from his own mother who he allegedly attacked.
Tatiana is being treated in hospital for her injuries.
Isabela described her mother’s survival of the attack as a “second chance” from God.
