A Bolivian taxi driver apparently took the law into his own hands, apprehending a suspected robber and locking him in his boot [trunk].

The driver, from Santa Cruz, claimed to have beaten the man with a stick and shut him in the boot of his car after recognising him as the man who stole his earnings the previous week.

In an interview with a TV reporter he says: “I’ve got the miscreant here. Do you want to see him?” before opening the boot, slapping the man hard on the stomach and yanking his legs to one side.

He adds: “I hit him with a stick, overpowered him, tied him up and brought him here. He’s here in my boot and I want the police to come here and take him away.

“He could have killed me the night he robbed me.”

He uses the interview to appeal to local police for help, saying: “Who can we ask to make sure justice is done? The mayor, the governor, the president?
“Politicians promise justice and security when they’re in politics but where’s the security here when they arrest people like this and let them out again eight hours later.

“I can’t work with this man in my boot and I’m not going to get any money out of him so I want the police to come here and do their job.”
