A thief bit off more than he could chew as he was caught red-handed, beaten and dragged as the driver of the vehicle kept driving.
Twitter user, @Yourwavgod, shared a very interesting video of a thief on the receiving end of mob justice.
The video included the following caption: “Somewhere in Africa, this guy tried to snatch a phone quickly from a passenger in this car, but unfortunately they all grabbed his hand. Now they are driving him to another country.”
The footage lives up to its description as the thief is seemingly stuck and dragged along with the car.
With his head at the passenger window, he becomes a sitting target and is continuously assaulted.
The footage proved both popular and controversial as it was liked more than 2000 times.
Briefly.co.za surveyed the responses and most tweeps saw the funny side with little sympathy for the criminal.
However, some raised their concerns and deemed the aggression to be slightly excessive.
