She doesn't need to press charges....if the police can see evidence that she is being abused, they will charge him. Call the cops!!!! Immediately.

You can't help those that won't accept help. It is up to that woman to decide for herself that she is not going to put up with that abuse. Once she has made the decision to get out of the situation, there are more options than one would think, but she has to actually make that choice. You or your wife can't do it for her. Only she can do that.
You could report the abuse to the authorities, but if as you say she will not confirm it or complain about it, all that will do is piss the loser off and get her beaten more.
Personally, I think that anyone who witnesses a man beating a woman should be allowed by law to put a stop to it, using whatever means are required, including violence.
