Lynched by the mafia: The robber who “attacked old women” is beaten and kicked, and more and more passersby join in after the botched robbery in Rome
- A 26-year-old man was knocked down on the sidewalk before being run over by others on the street.
A mugger who “targeted elderly women” was kicked and beaten in the street after trying to rob a 90-year-old woman in Rome.
The 26-year-old was initially attacked yesterday by a group of three men who punched him in the face before others joined in as the beating progressed from the pavement to the road.
In the middle of the street, a group proceeded to punch and kick the man, continuing as he sat down and then stood up.
He can be seen pleading with them to stop, but they continue to mock him and hit him as he tries to escape before being kicked to the ground again by a group, including some new members.
The man then staggers away while one of the group members is restrained by others present.

The beating in the Roman neighborhood of Quarticciolo was captured on video by a resident and immediately went viral on social media.
Sharing the video, Florinda Pavone wrote: ‘With so much footage and screams not to defend one guy against a hundred, but to avoid a collision with his own car.
‘Not humans but BEASTS. And we are surprised by the number of acts of violence that exist today. This is the reality.
‘I really wonder if there is hope and if it is worth living here and facing it.
‘WELCOME TO THE CITY COUNCIL OF QUARTTICCIOLO-V.’
Subsequently, the assailant was arrested and a judge ordered a ban on remaining in the capital.
The police will launch an investigation to identify the attackers.

In April 2021, Italian jeweler Mario Roggero opened fire on a gang of robbers and shot dead two people after they raided his boutique and tied up his daughter.
The attempted robbery by three men armed with a knife and a gun occurred around 6:30 p.m. in Grinzane Cavour.
The robbers threatened to kill the 67-year-old man and his family and tied his daughter’s hands.
The owner ran out of the store and fired at least five shots at the two robbers.
Another thief was injured and taken to the hospital after fleeing the scene.
Immediately after the events, Roggero was accused of culpable excess of self-defense, but will now be tried for murder.
