Man beaten for stealing car
A thief, who sought to make off with a mechanic's vehicle, was not so lucky in his quest, as he was caught by residents in a South Manchester community.
Based on the account of residents, the owner of the car went to make a purchase in the Mandeville area, but when he came out of the store, he realised that his car was missing.
Residents in neighbouring communities and the police were notified of the incident.
The stolen car was spotted by another motorist, who gave chase. Later, residents who became aware of the incident, threw stones at the car. In a bid to escape, the thief then diverted into a street, which turned out to be a dead end.
He was eventually caught and beaten by residents.
