Alerted neighbors were able to capture the alleged killer, beat him up and tied him to a light post naked, reported news agency Colprensa.

Police reportedly had to intervene to keep the lynch mob from killing the subject.

Colprensa said the suspect appeared under the influence of drugs and claimed being god while being attacked by neighbors.
