Suspect in Sexual Assault Case Severely Beaten by Victim’s Acquaintance
Who says vigilante justice is always a bad thing? William Mattson couldn’t have been served the justice he deserved within the legal system, and was beaten to a bloody pulp by an acquaintance of his victim before the police arrived.
CONWAY, SC (WIS) –
A man accused of sexually assaulting a victim Thursday was beaten by an acquaintance of the victim before the police even arrived.
William Mattson’s mugshot clearly shows the result of what happened to him early Thursday morning before officers with the Conway Police Department came to the scene around 12:57 a.m.
Police found the mangled Mattson, 52, at the Highway 905 residence with the victim claiming the sexual assault.
Investigators stopped short of saying who exactly beat Mattson, but said the person was “acting in defense for the victim.”
Mattson was then arrested and taken to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
Now I’m not saying that the acquaintance was right in manhandling this monster but…. oh wait, that’s EXACTLY what I’m saying. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim and their family.
