A resident tried to open the bathroom door but it was locked from the inside. Knowing the door was locked, other residents climbed onto the roof of the bathroom and immediately broke through the roof with their feet. The man then went into the bathroom and opened the door which was locked from the inside.
Several people then dragged an unknown man from the bathroom. The man in shorts and a green shirt was immediately beaten. Meanwhile, the sound of women’s cries continued to be heard from inside the bathroom. The man in the green shirt could only protect his head from the blows of the citizens. He was dragged outside.
“Just take it out, don’t go inside the counter. Police, police. Take it to the police. This rape,” shouted residents as in the video seen

Without further ado, the perpetrators of the attempted rape of a cell phone counter employee rushed into the bathroom
