I like the word "Detained" ...a euphamism for beat the hell out of him for trying to lure two little girls using candy. Street justice prevailes? Springfield man, 'detained' by neighbors, arrested on child-enticement charges as he is released from hospital - MassLive.com SPRINGFIELD - Was it street justice that led to 61-year-old Randolph Barden's beating by neighbors earlier this month? Or, was it some kind of vendetta on the part of the girls who accused him of attempting to lure them into his car with candy? Officers Anthony Sowers and Craig Davis, dispatched to the area of Bay and Marion streets shortly after 9:30 p.m., discovered Barden laying on the ground suffering from injuries "and the whole neighborhood gathered around," Delaney said. Delaney said detectives found Barden's car on Girard Avenue loaded with candy. It was towed as evidence. Detectives arrested Barden, of 147 Marion St., Tuesday night as he was being released from Baystate. He is charged with four counts of enticing a child under 16, Delaney said.
