A domestic abuser man learned his fate the hard way…

An enraged mob hit a Utah man with a car and then beat him to death after learning he had given his pregnant fiancee a black eye. On the afternoon of Monday, June 14, at least six people swarmed 41-year-old Fred Valdamar Ortiz behind Smith’s grocery store in Magna, reports said.

According to arrest papers, a gang of at least six persons chased down and battered Ortiz behind the Smith‘s at 8055 West 3500 South. Ortiz was found unconscious and not breathing when police arrived around 2.30 pm.

Ortiz was on parole, according to his stepdaughter who wished to be identified as MP. She was inside a car that followed Ortiz to Smith’s where he was beaten up.

She told police that the pregnant woman is her mother and that Ortiz had beaten the woman two days ago. “They have been scared to report it because (Ortiz) is on parole and his probation officer will not do anything to lock him up,” police wrote in the affidavit, according to KSL.

Ortiz’s girlfriend is a dog breeder and the group was at her home looking for a puppy when she told them he hit her and gave her a black eye a few days earlier, Fox13 reported citing arrest records.

Ortiz drove by on a scooter and the furious group which included a 13-year-old — ran out of the house after the man.

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

Surveillance footage 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.

A member of the group told police that they asked one of the others, a woman, to stop the beating, but she refused.

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

A suspect, who is related to Ortiz, told police that he beat his girlfriend and that the family was scared to report the incident because he is on parole and “his probation officer will not do anything to lock him up.”

Martinez and Hill remained held in the Salt Lake County Jail without bail. It remained unclear what charges would follow.
