A naked man was beaten by parents at JCPenny in Seattle after he allegedly acted inappropriately around children.

A video posted to X on Monday evening shows several people chasing the unclothed suspect around the clothing store as he persistently avoided capture.

“Parents in Seattle, Washington, confront a naked man at a JCPenny store after he allegedly attempted to inappropriately touch their children,” the caption of the viral 57-second clip said.

One parent eventually caught the naked man toward the end of the video, retaliating by hitting him. Others joined in, beating up the man as he was held in place.

The video went viral, accumulating 2.6 million views in less than 24 hours of its initial posting. The identities of the suspect, parents and children remain unknown. (RELATED: Target Announces Store Closures In Blue Cities, Citing Theft And Concerns About ‘Guest Safety’)

Many anonymous social media users reacted to the footage.

“A naked man touching my kids or even my girlfriend/wife? He better PRAY the cops get there before I’m done! My man with the Hulk-smashes is a kindred-spirit,” one social media user wrote.

“Article 1 Section 24 of the Washington State Constitution,” another user wrote. “The right of the individual citizen to bear arms in defense of themselves or the state shall not be impaired. Use your God given right to bear arms to defend your children!”

“Sad part is with this being Seattle, they’ll side with the pervert,” a third user wrote.

Business owners in Seattle feel “defeated” by the city’s weak response to crime, causing consideration to hire private security. Efforts to defund the police have created trouble for business owners as they deal with skyrocketing theft, homelessness and drug use.
