The footage clearly shows how the security guards took the man to the storage room, then started beating and kicking him.
The Prosecutor’s Office of the District of Pécs has prosecuted 2 security guards for grievous bodily injury after capturing a man they assumed to be a thief and then gravely beating him up.
One of them works as a security officer in a drug store and the other one as a security guard in the shopping centre in which the drug store is located, reports szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu.
Last September, the security officer spotted a man in the shop who he knew already by sight for previously having caught him in the act of stealing perfumes on several occasions.
The guard was supervising the shop on a security camera from inside the storage room. When the man arrived at the perfume shelves, the guard went outside to the shopping area and pulled down the grids of the entry/exit in order to stop the man from leaving the shop.
After seeing this, the man walked towards the exit; however, he could not leave the shop due to the closed grids.
That is when the security officer grabbed his hand and dragged him into the storage room where he hit and kicked him several times.
The business manager noticed what was going on. She called on the guard to stop harassing the man, and she even tried to pull him away from the guard, but without any success. She then went back to the shop to open up the grid and called for help from the shopping centre’s security guard standing in the corridor.
Meanwhile, the security officer made the man take off his shoes and get on his knees. That is when the other security guard arrived at the storage room and punched the man with his fist, so hard that his nose broke.
The man had been caught several times for stealing perfume from the same shop. Nothing extraordinary, compared to what this Hungarian man stole.
