A suspected bandit who robbed a shop in Babonneau of an undisclosed sum of money is currently in hospital nursing multiple injuries after reportedly being severely beaten by the shop owner and some residents of the neighbourhood, the Times has been reliably informed.
According to information, the incident happened on Sunday after midnight.
It is reported that the three men, one of them armed with a rifle, held up the shop owner and left with a sum of money.
Exact details of what happened next are sketchy, but the Times was told that one of the suspects was held by the shop owner and neighbourhood residents as the others fled.
The suspected bandit was severely beaten, resulting in him being hospitalised.
Photos of the naked, bloodied suspect wearing what appears to be a mask, have been circulating on social media.
