Pictured: Alexa Cojanu was brutally attacked Tuesday morning in Surry Hills
The heavily pregnant woman who was brutally beaten in a gruesome unprovoked attack in Sydney has been identified as Alexa Cojanu.
Mrs. Cojanu walked on Wentworth Avenue in Surry Hills on Tuesday morning, when another woman, Olivia Mahe, allegedly hit her, kicked her and pushed her into the gutter.
CCTV of the shocking attack shows that Mrs. Cojanu, who works in marketing, cramps her stomach while she curls herself in a ball to protect her unborn child.
Despite her attempts to escape, the CCTV shows that she is constantly beaten until the good Samaritan Martin Barrett has stepped in to help.
The Sydney woman, 30 weeks pregnant, grabbed her belly when she was beaten and kicked by a woman she had never met in an unprovoked attack
Mr. Barrett was on his way to work when he jumped to the victim's defense and wriggled her away from the attacker.
& # 39; I saw that it was one-sided & # 39 ;, the English-born man who moved to Sydney seven years ago told reporters on Wednesday.
& # 39; It was not a fight, it was an attack, and at that moment I realized that this person was defenseless and was just trying to help like any decent person would. & # 39;
Mrs. Cojanu is 30 weeks pregnant and has never met her attacker, who comes from Mount Druitt.
A police officer on duty, who had only been working for three weeks, also rushed to the rescue of Mrs. Cojanu and pulled the alleged attacker away.

Shocking security footage shows that Mr. Barrett brings the pregnant woman to safety while the alleged attacker points and calls.
After the attack, a Uber driver along the street told Daily Mail Australia that he saw Mrs. Cojanu walking away and shouted: & # 39; My baby, my darling & # 39 ;.
The expectant mother was taken to the hospital with bruises and swelling on her face, but has since been released and luckily her unborn baby was unharmed.
Mahe, who was detained by the rookie police officer until uniformed officers arrived, was taken into custody and charged with mistreatment.
It is claimed that Mahe pulled the victim's hair and rammed her into a pole.
Detective Chief Inspector Adam Johnson described the incident as a & # 39; totally unprovoked, unfounded, unnecessary attack & # 39 ;.
Mahe was refused the bail of the police and appeared on Tuesday in the Central Court of Justice, where she was taken into pre-trial detention.
