As mob advances, crook finds himself friendless

When mob justice comes into play, all pretenses of loyalty are off, at least they were for one accomplice who managed to flee while his necklace-snatching partner was caught by a crowd in the capital’s Chamkarmon district on Wednesday afternoon.

Police say the victim was strolling when the 20-year-old suspect made his move. Reacting quickly, the woman yelled “thief”.

While the mob caught the suspect and handed him over to the cops, the identity of his fair-weather friend is unknown.
