An angry mob ran down a Utah man with a car then beat him to death after they heard he gave his pregnant girlfriend a black eye, reports said.

At least six people swarmed 41-year-old Fred Valdamar Ortiz behind Smith’s grocery store in Magna on Monday afternoon, Fox 13 reported.

Ortiz’s girlfriend is a dog breeder and the group was over her home looking for a puppy when she told them he hit her and gave her a black eye a few days earlier, Fox 13 said, citing arrest records.

Ortiz drove by on a scooter and the furious group – which included a 13-year old – darted out of the house after him.

One suspect, 19-year-old Osyeanna Martinez, hit Ortiz with a Volkswagen Beetle, KUTZ reported. Ortiz kept running, but his attackers were soon upon him, using a pole while he was on the ground, Fox 13 said.

Surveillance footage from a restaurant nearby showed Martinez throwing two boards at Ortiz’s back and head, KUTV said. Police only identified one of the other suspects using a full name, 18-year-old Xandre Sky Hill, the TV station said.

The other accused were identified in a police report using only their initials, according to KUTV. All of the suspects were in their teens and early 20s, the station said.
