Bag snatcher beaten within inch of his life

An angry mob chased down a suspected bag-snatcher and beat him unconscious on Tuesday night in the capital’s Chamkarmon district.

Police say a young woman was eating a snack with her brother on the street when the 26-year-old suspect grabbed the bag and ran.

Yelling “bag snatch! bag snatch!” the brother gave chase and was soon joined by locals who caught the man and punched, slapped, kicked and kneed him until he passed out.

Police arrived and brought the man to their office. NOKORWAT
