Cook brings heat, mob down on capital crooks

Too many cooks spoil the broth, but there’s no such thing as too many vigilantes for one grateful Phnom Penh cook.

Police said the chef was driving home when two men slowed down next to her and tried to snatch her bag.

Unwilling to part so easily with the purse, she resisted, ultimately sending their bike toppling over.

As she shouted for help, onlookers quickly assembled and put the boots (as well as the punches and open-hand slaps) to the duo, saving the bag and holding the thieves until police arrived. KOH SANTEPHEAP
