Dancer and Instagram influencer held at knifepoint by ‘obsessed’ male fan

A shocking video appears to show an "obsessed" fan holding a famous dance teacher and Instagram influencer at knifepoint – moments before he is shot and arrested.

The incident occurred at the Club de Danza (Dance Club) dance school located in Buenos Aires, the capital city of Argentina, yesterday (November 10).

Julieta Anton, 26, was at the dance school where she works as an instructor along with the owner Sofia Bovino, 36 when both were allegedly attacked by student Sebastian Damian Villarreal.

Villarreal, 30, is alleged to be "obsessed" with Julieta, local media reports.

Witnesses alerted patrol officers in the Belgrano neighbourhood when they heard the screams of the two women.

The video shows the moment police and Damian Villarreal are in a standoff as an officer calls for backup and an ambulance and the two women can be heard begging the suspect to stop.

He was cornered in a room holding the women at knifepoint.

The cop that called in for backup lowers his firearm and says: "Drop the knife, I am not aiming at you, drop the knife."

Both women were taken to the Pirovano Hospital where they were treated for several cuts sustained in the attack but are reported to not be in danger.

Sofia's sister, Maia, said she is undergoing surgery in one of her fingers but "still don’t know if it was a cut or an injury from the gunshot", according to Argentine news channel TN.

Villarreal was hit and taken to the Tornu Hospital where he remains hospitalised, according to local sources.

One of Julieta's friends, Ayelen, told TN Julieta and Villarreal were never a couple and he had an obsession with her.

Villarreal is alleged to have constantly sent Julieta messages that made her nervous but she did not imagine him capable of such an act.

The 30-year-old remains in police custody and is charged with aggravated assault with serious injuries and is being investigated by the Criminal Prosecution of Felony and Misdemeanours number five.

Julieta is a well-known dancer in Argentina after her participation in a popular Argentine show called ShowMatch and also works with Martina Alejandra Stoessel Muzlera known as Tini Stoessel famous for her work in a Disney Channel Latin America telenovela.

Julieta has 105,000 followers on Instagram, where she uploads dance videos.
