Man Pelted by Mob

DENVER (AP) – Residents angry that police had not warned them about sex assaults took matters into their own hands, chasing down a man they thought was the attacker, pelting him with rocks and leaving him with a bloody face in Colorado.

Pueblo police later released the man because of lack of evidence.

Alex Pacheco, one of the pursuers, says neighborhood residents were looking for a man on Sunday suspected of two separate sexual acts involving children when they got word that a man matching the description had been spotted.

Residents confronted the man and he ran.
