Shocking scenes in Peru, as a local vigilante group storms a nightclub in Cajamarca, chasing dozens of women from the building using whips and dogs.

The disturbing footage shows masked and hooded members of the unnamed group descending on the Alondra Nightclub with nearly 50 women, believed to work there, seen fleeing as the vigilantes lashed them with whips.

Looking confused and scared, many women can be seen cowering in corners, while elsewhere, vigilantes are filmed forcing the club’s male employees to do pushups outside.

According to local reports, the group said that it conducts these kinds of operations to eradicate prostitution and crime.

Difficult words: vigilante (someone who illegally punishes criminals usually because he thinks the police are not doing this effectively), storm (attack), chase (follow), descend on (make a sudden attack), flee (run away), lash (strike with a whip), conduct (organise and carry out), eradicate (destroy completely).
