A middle-aged woman was beaten down by an angry mob after she attempted to abduct a 2-year-old child in a stroller in broad daylight on Sunday afternoon in Chengdu, China.
The woman suddenly walked up to a mother pushing her baby in the stroller around the neighborhood and an ensuing struggle between the two was caught on surveillance camera, according to Shanghaiist.
The woman gave up after about 20 seconds and can be seen fleeing the scene in the direction she came from.
Little did she know there was an angry crowd of people waiting for her around the corner who blocked her path and beat her to the ground, leaving her unconscious.
