Mob defends motodop, gives suspect beatdown

Two alleged thieves messed with the wrong motodop on Saturday, leading to a predictably violent backlash from the locals.

One of the suspects, a 29-year-old garment worker, was caught by a mob after he and his friend pushed the motodop off his bike and tried to make a getaway.

His friend managed to evade the wrath of the mob, but the garment worker was beaten within an inch of his life before police intervened to calm the crowd down. KOH SANTEPHEAP
