East London - A man suspected of child abuse is in hospital after being beaten by angry residents in Kwa Nobuhle, Uitenhage, Eastern Cape police said on Monday.

On Saturday the father of a 5-year-old boy noticed he was missing, said Lieutenant-Colonel Priscilla Naidu said.

The father and local residents began searching for the child and later found him walking with the man.

At first the community was grateful to him, but when he left the child accused the man of sexually assaulting him.

The boy's father chased and caught the man and an angry crowd attacked him.

The boy and the man were hospitalised.

The man would appear in court soon, Naidu said.
