A man was severely punished for attempting to steal designer clothes.
Community members who were fed up of the many drug dealers and thieves in their neighborhood, decided to teach one thug a lesson.
The men of South Africa, surrounded the suspect, and gouged out his left eye, so he has a lifelong reminder of his evil deeds.
“The eye that was looking for things to steal, will not see again,” said an angry resident.
The alleged thief, who is 25 years old, was accused of stealing a suitcase full of designer clothes and R1000 (about $100).
The man begged for mercy and his life was speared. However, he was scared for life as his eyes were removed and his face scarred.
Officers arrived and took the man to a hospital, where he was treated under the watchful eyes of police. He was also charged with theft.
