Footage released by the Sao Paulo authorities showed a customer holding Oliveira’s left arm as he was escorted through a corridor.
Brazilian news outlet G1 reported that the incident erupted after Monteiro requested an investigation into Oliveira’s alleged disrespectful behavior towards an employee who felt threatened by the lawyer.
Oliveira told the District One Center in the Civil Police Department that he was bullied by his co-workers. The station chief elected not to keep him in custody.
Monteiro told Tribuna TV that Oliveira was likely outraged after a commission was set up to look into the allegations.
‘I was scared, yes.’ “I was afraid this might happen,’ said Montero. “But I didn’t imagine it would be physical violence, I thought it (it would just be) an argument.”
Demetrius Oliveira leaned on Prosecutor Gabriela Monteiro before punching her during Monday’s bizarre incident in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the registration department where they were both assigned to work.

The Public Prosecutor of the Registration Department of Sao Paulo, Gabriela Monteiro, was badly beaten by the Public Prosecutor in her office on Monday.
A police report obtained by news outlet G1 indicated that Oliveira hit Montero in the head and punched her several times.
He pushed a woman in the door after she tried to pull him away and then slapped Montero in the face before eventually being handcuffed by two employees.
Civil Police Chief Daniel Vass has submitted a request to hold Oliveira remanded in custody while the investigation is underway because he is still considered a threat.
“He (Olivera) had serious relationship problems with women in the work environment, and when he is released, he puts their lives at risk, and thus public order,” Vass said, citing the G1 website.
