In 2009, twenty bandits in India experienced a catastrophic victim selection failure when villagers fought back and slaughtered them:

About 20 robbers raided a remote village in Jharkhand state late on Wednesday, but they were surrounded by hundreds of villagers, who began chasing them, police said.

“Four were beaten to death, while eight took shelter in a house, which was set on fire by the villagers,” Mohammad Nehal, a senior police officer, told Reuters.

Armed villagers stood guard outside to ensure none of the robbers escaped, he said.
