An Azerbaijani man has come up with an unorthodox way of getting even with a pedophile who raped his son. He tracked down the rapist, sexually assaulted him on camera, and distributed the footage.
While investigating a case of underage pornography distribution, the police of Azeri capital Baku stumbled upon a bewildering case of vigilantism, writes aysor.am news site citing local media reports.
The story began in October 2009 when a 17-year-old Garadag district-dweller lured an unsuspecting eight-year-old boy into his KamAZ truck, beat him up and raped him. A passerby then got into the truck and threatened to make the boy’s misery public, and then raped the boy himself.
Learning about the crime, the victim’s father, along with a group of relatives, tracked down the first rapist and revenge-raped him – all the while filming the event on a camera phone.
The footage was then distributed throughout the Azeri capital, which was how the police learned about the story. Now, both rapists and the vigilante are in custody facing charges of “sexual offences against minors” and “group sexual offence conducted with prior collusion”.
