    AKRON, OH (CNN) -- An Ohio woman was attacked by her former boyfriend in court as she sought a protection order against him.

    The incident was captured on a court security camera Friday after the Magistrate stepped out of the room and left her with him.

    You can see the man jump from his seat and chase the woman around the table.

    Her grandmother tried to step in, but was pushed aside.

    The woman was knocked to the floor and punched several times before a deputy came in and shocked the man with a Taser.

    The 28-year-old woman was treated for a head injury and bruise on her left arm.

    Her former boyfriend is jailed on charges of domestic violence and contempt of court.

    Court officials said they will review security measures in light of the attack.
