In the video, mob members are seen removing clothing items from the two suspects while cutting their hair with a large pair of scissors as they lie on the ground.

At one point, the two half-naked women are seen hugging each other as the mob continues to cut their hair.

At the end of the footage, they are seen walking off arm-in-arm as onlookers film with their phones.

According to local media, residents claimed that the women were stealing clothes from the city’s Sebastian Escobar Market.

Mob members said that they dished out their own form of community justice after accusing the local authorities of failing to act whenever they report such incidents.
