5 Mob storm police station and lynch suspected paedophile
The man had been arrested in Reyes, northern Bolivia, however locals refused to wait for his trial instead taking justice – in the loosest sense – into their own hands, reports the Daily Mail.
Police officers were desperately outnumbered and failed to stop the public lynching.
Disturbing video footage shows the gang forcing their way into the man’s jail cell before beating him, dragging him through the streets and hanging him from a tree.
The 4-year-old victim was not a local but was visiting with her parents for her grandmother’s funeral.
