A British man battered a German diner to death after busting him filming his young daughter on his iPad in a Spanish restaurant, police said.
Kainth Devinder, 40, allegedly attacked Sandro Rottman, 43, after spotting him recording his little girl at the upmarket port of Sotogrande’s Spinnaker eatery early Sunday, according to The Local.
The German had been arrested just days earlier for alleged possession of child porn, according to reports.
“The girl’s father got up and went to the table where the victim was,” a Civil Guard source told AFP.
“He took the tablet off him, saw that there were recordings of his daughter, and that was when the attack took place,” he added.
Devinder, whose daughter is reported to be under the age of eight, paid his check and left the restaurant soon after the alleged incident.
Rottman was rushed to a hospital in La Linea de la Concepcion. He was declared dead soon after, reports Sky News.
Cops were called to the restaurant and witnesses identified Devinder as the alleged attacker.
He was later arrested at his home, and remanded in prison after appearing before a magistrate Monday. Police are now waiting for the results of a post-mortem examination on Rottman.
A British Foreign Office spokeswoman said it was “standing ready” to provide consular assistance to the British man “if requested.”
