Three videos, out on social media, show the man bleeding and begging for mercy. The crowd around the victim are seen hitting the man again and again, with his pleas for forgiveness falling on deaf ears.

He entered the house from the terrace on the fourth floor. He had a bag with some tools. He came into my father’s bedroom and was looking for money, when my father woke up.
