Footage has emerged of a convicted sex offender getting punched in the head, as vigilantes track the paedophile’s every move.
Shannon Norgate was convicted of sexually abusing two boys in a school toilet block at Gladstone, in Queensland’s north-west in 2019. He impersonated a security guard to lure them inside.
The 22-year-old is on probation after serving 406 days in jail, and was staying at a property near Brisbane until Wednesday, when he was told to move along by police.
Since this moment, every move he makes is being tracked by vigilantes online, eager to ensure his relocation doesn’t pose a risk to nearby children.

One of those people decided to take justice into their own hands on Friday, punching Norgate as he waited at a Brisbane transit centre.

The woman recording can be heard giggling as the 22-year-old shields himself from the blow.
A series of photographs have also been published online of Norgate travelling on public transport around the city.
Police asked the sex offender to relocate from his premises on Wednesday because of its close proximity to the Yeronga State School.
Members of the public reported seeing him near the police headquarters at Roma Street in Brisbane earlier this morning.
