A man who had attempted raping a 10-year-old girl at north western town of Trujillo was arrested by a group of women and given a serious beating of his life.

The suspected paedophile had tried to escape by jumping onboard a taxi, but he was dragged out of the vehicle by the women gang and assaulted while onlookers made contact with the police.

The beating started when the said man was seen running out of the little girl's room.

According to the mirror.co.uk, not even the plea by the man that he was drunk could touch the heart of the mob to spare him. They continued to torture him until a police officer eventually arrived and took the suspect away.

Details of the suspect are not public yet and the police have equally not proffered any charges against him yet.
