This is the moment an angry mob strips a woman topless and parades her through town with a sign saying “I am a thief, know who I am” as cops do nothing to intervene.

The incident took place near the city of Puno in the south-eastern Peruvian region of the same name after the unnamed woman was accused by people in the angry mob of stealing 1,500 PEN (361 GBP) from a street vendor.

The sobbing woman is then forced to hold a cardboard sign before being paraded through the town’s streets topless.

    We visited Puno on the shores of Lake Titicaca when we toured Peru. It sits at 12.5k feet and we Americans were all sucking wind.
