Video (below) showing a father beating an alleged pedophile in Mexico who tried to attack his 13-year-old daughter has captured international attention.
In the video, the father and another man repeatedly kick the man in his face and stamp on him inside a women's bathroom at a mall in Cancun, Mexico, the Daily Mail reports.
The man reportedly attacked the teenage girl shortly after she walked out of a stall, shoving her to the floor and trying to climb on top of her while pulling his pants down.
Her screams caught the attention of both her father and security guards, who promptly dragged the man off the girl and out of the bathroom, beating him as they did so.
Both the father and the alleged attacker, a 23-year-old named only as Bernabe N., were arrested.
This is not the first time video has shown a father beating an alleged pedophile.
In March 2015, a father posted a video of an alleged pedophile in Brazil he beat up. The man being beaten promises to stop contacting the 11-year-old girl, repeatedly mumbling, “Never again.” He was found dead a few days later.
The father claimed the 23-year-old man was trying to groom his child through WhatsApp. The man did not realize he had been talking to the father, not the girl.
"You will learn from this beating that you will now take you b------,” the father said in the video.
The video was met with mixed reactions, reports Inquistr.
“For all we know the father baited him got the guy to say perverted s---," one user said. "Best thing to do would be to turn evidence over to police after hurting him a little, or setting up a meeting with the guy when he think it is the girl and showing up with the police. Killing him when he technically didn’t do anything was going way over the top. The girl wasn’t raped yes, but now she is going to grow up without a father, and be known as the girl whose father is a murderer.”
