THIS is the moment a raging mum punched a man in the face after a baying mob accused him of being a paedophile.
The woman lunged at the alleged perv during ugly and chaotic scenes in Sheldon, Birmingham.
Cops struggled to calm a furious vigilante gang who left the man bloody and battered as violence erupted onto suburban streets on Sunday night.
Shocking footage shows the man being accused of “flashing” at a teenage girl before he is punched and kicked repeatedly in the face.
The clip begins with the suspect standing with a bloody nose in the middle of the road.
The man filming says: “Oi, this man here tried to feel up little girl. Try to feel up little girls, talk to little girls?”
To which he replies: “You’re full of s***.”
The suspect is then seen being goaded and chased by a man in a baseball cap who punches him in the face – knocking him into a passing car and onto the tarmac.
As two bystanders try to break the warring men apart, the suspect allegedly spits at his assailant – who responds by throwing him to the pavement and repeatedly kicking him in the head.
A third clip shows a female police officer questioning the suspect while her male colleague asks the crowd: “So, he’s been flashing?”
Several voices reply “yes” and somebody off-camera appears to make an allegation against the man. The officer asks: “He tried to touch you? In what way?”
He then approaches the suspect and handcuffs him as the crowd begins to grow more hostile, hurling obscenities and threats.
One woman rages: “You f****** paedophile.”
Suddenly, the man is struck in the face and the crowd goes into a frenzy.
The male officer immediately arrests a woman, restrains her against the bonnet of a car and places her in cuffs.
Speaking directly to the camera, the arrested woman defends her actions, saying: “Paedo, you know. Look at the state of my babby. Look at the state of my daughter. Distraught.”
