A suspected thief was on Wednesday, arrested and beaten mercilessly after he made an attempt to romance his victim just after robbing her in Delta state.
It was discovered that the suspect allegedly gained access into a lady’s house with the intention to steal along Yoruba road extension in Sapele area.
After stealing the lady’s phone, the thief decided to embark on another mission, this time to feed his sexual appetite.
According to the female victim, she felt someone romancing her leg in her sleep and as she opened her eyes to see a stranger in her room, she immediately raised an alarm and shouted before neighbours gave the suspect a hot pursuit.
“I was not aware of when he was robbing me because I was deep asleep but was awoken when I realised something was rubbing on my legs. I opened my eyes, only to see a stranger in my room”
It was revealed that the suspect later identified as Julius, was beaten mercilessly by the mob to the extent that he pooed on himself.
The lady disclosed that she’s sick and took some drugs that’s why she slept off and didn’t notice when the suspect entered her house.
The stolen phone was later recovered.
