A police officer in Argentina who shot a suspected thief was attacked by a group of women close to the victim.
The incident, the aftermath of which was uploaded to YouTube, occurred last Saturday on a street in San Cayetano, according to local newspaper La Gaceta.
Police sources said that the young man was injured when he resisted arrest and attempted to attack police personnel.
In the clip, a woman is heard screaming for someone to call an ambulance in order to attend the wounded.
Another woman demands that the face of the officer be filmed, as he tries to revive the young man lying on the floor while receiving blows and insults from the women.
In the midst of collective hysteria, other police intervene to stop the mob.
