A FURIOUS lynch mob demanded cops hand over a suspected pedophile after a five-year-old girl was found naked and bound on the floor.
Hundreds stormed the 68-year-old suspect's flat, a local police station and an administration building in Satpayev, Kazakhstan where he was held.
Locals launched a hunt for the kidnapper after a father reported his daughter missing.
Police used loudspeakers to call her name and she was heard crying behind the man's door, which officers broke down to find her naked and bound with adhesive tape.
The flat had been checked before but she was not found as she was hidden in a sofa.
The man, who has been charged with rape and kidnap, was later detained and a medical examination reportedly confirmed the girl was raped.
A mob followed him to the police station when he was detained while some stormed and ransacked his flat and others reportedly set police cars on fire.
Tengrinews.kz reported that the angry Satpayev residents demanded the suspect be handed over to them for lynching.
A neighbour of the suspect said: “We heard the sounds of popping noises and the smell of acrid smoke.
“It was very scary, because this crowd of angry people could set fire at any time to the entrance of the block where the suspect lives.”
Fergana news agency reported that stones and sticks were thrown at the police station and burning mixtures at cars, with several catching fire.
We heard the sounds of popping noises and the smell of acrid smoke.
But head of the Kazakhstan Lawyers’ Union Serik Berkamalov said while he could understand the mob mentality he could not support them.
He said “The first reaction to violence against a small child is naturally the most violent and instinctive – to shoot on the spot, to tear him apart alive.
“I will not hide that as a father I felt the same.
“We are all living people. You can understand the crowd of lynchers, but you cannot support it.”
He stressed that the laws against paedophiles had been toughened in Kazakhstan, with some offenders facing chemical castration.
It comes as this week a hero policeman was honoured after a suspected paedophile leaped from a 13th floor window during a chase in Kazakhstan – and the cop jumped after him.
Father of six Bakytzhan Bakirov, 36, was so determined to catch the alleged “rapist” that he did not think twice about falling, he said.
Unknown to him there was a terrace 20ft below and the Almaty officer broke his foot but managed to hold the suspect until help arrived.
The alleged paedophile named Citizen Sh is accused of breaking into a house and raping a 15 year old girl after stealing £13,500 and terrorising her brother, 4.
A nurse and grandmother tasked with castrating paedophiles in Kazakhstan claims the West should follow the ex-Soviet state’s example.
Zoya Manaenko, 68, insists it is right that child sex attackers should face this ultimate punishment.
“These people need to be stopped somehow,” said Zoya who works in a prison hospital.
“They commit terrible crimes against children. So it is right that the law allows this.”
