Neigbourhood on watch catch burglar in the act

The cover of darkness provided a burglar no protection against a mob beating on Sunday.

The man, 37, broke into a house with his friend in the wee hours and almost made it all the way out unseen.

When the burglars scaled the fence, however, a neighbour noticed what was unfolding and rallied his friends.

A group of residents soon cornered one of the men and dished out some street “justice” in the form of kicks and punches before police arrived. KOH SANTEPHEAP
