On Sunday in Ningguo, Anhui province, a thief slit the throat of a female high-school student in broad daylight, killing her, before stabbing another woman. The city set up a task force of over 100 people to track down the murderer. A suspect was arrested on Wednesday in Hangzhou and brought back to Ningguo, where thousands of people had gathered to “greet” him.
Police officers attempted to bundle the suspect through the crowd as their co-workers desperately held the mass of people back. Despite this some were able to get through and attack the man, while others threw rubbish and stones at him.
