A man is recuperating after sustaining serious burns for allegedly stealing a packet of condoms.
According to observers, a group of 3 men followed Joseph Lemaria to a local bar demanding that he pays for the stolen goods.
While speaking to the police, Lemaria narrated the ordeal saying he did not have anything to do with the theft. It is said that the men poured small amounts of petrol on him and wanted to burn him.
He sustained stomach, chest and hand burns. The matter is still under investigations with the police calling upon the public to forward the names of offenders rather than taking the law into their hands.
