This is the moment a bloodied thief suspected of robbing a woman is kicked and grabbed by an angry mob as paramedics try to treat him for a gunshot wound to the leg.
The incident took place in Santa Elena colony, in Cuautitlan, in the central Mexican state of Mexico after local residents reportedly found the suspect and an accomplice breaking into a woman’s house.
In the video, the suspect can be seen with his legs covered in blood and bandages wrapped around his right hand.
The man covers his face as two figures wearing medical gloves, reportedly paramedics, try and treat him. He appears to have a gunshot wound on his right leg above his knee.
Onlookers can then be seen kicking the man’s back as the paramedics try to help him and the angry mob can be heard shouting “let’s see his face, he is a thief” and “how dare you mess around with women”.
One onlooker then pulls the man’s arms behind his head and grabs his face to show it to the camera.
Reports state the suspect continued being beaten until the police arrived and he was taken to hospital under police custody.
It is unclear when the man was shot while it is believed his accomplice managed to escape the scene unharmed.
The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
