AN unidentified man was yesterday beaten by a mob at the intersection of Hebert Chitepo Avenue and Leopold Takawira Street in the capital when he tried to escape after hitting a woman with his car.
The man, who was arrested by a cop who was passing by, argued that he was not trying to escape but was rather confused and rushing off to a funeral.
“I was not trying to run away from the scene. I don’t know what really happened or what l was thinking since l am going to a funeral.
“Don’t beat me please. I am innocent and l also have my driver’s licence,” he said pleading with the mob.
The woman was ferried to hospital by an ambulance.
