This is the viral moment a vigilante passenger pummels a suspected pervert for harassing a young woman on a bus.
The incident was filmed on a bus in the north-western Mexican state of Nuevo Leon and the footage was later shared on Facebook by netizen ‘IG Torres’ where it has gone viral with 2.5 million views.
In the footage, the young man is seen standing over the seated suspect before suddenly releasing a flurry of punches.
A man in the background says to a woman sitting on the other side of the bus: “Has he been bothering you?”
The young woman nods her head.
The suspect gets to his feet to leave the bus and the passenger punches him several times on his way out as several women at the back ask him to stop hurting the man.
Netizen ‘Chapis Diaz’ commented: “Excellent. He was only defending the woman. Screw everyone who told him to stop punching him. I bet they wouldn’t say that if it was their daughter in that position.”
‘Tannya Worley’ said: “Good for the passenger who got the guy off the bus!”
‘Anel Espinoza Marquez’ wrote: “Well done that man!”
