A different kind of flash mob for PP purse robber

A tourist in the capital’s Daun Penh district was able to witness crime and punishment Phnom Penh-style in one fell swoop on Monday.

Police said the foreigner was travelling in a tuk-tuk holding a purse when two men on a moto slowed down next to her to make the snatch.

She wasn’t such an easy mark, however, and resisted, causing the moto to run into the tuk-tuk and then crash to the street.

While one of the thieves managed to successfully flee, the other was soon in the hands of a quickly assembled mob who gave him a sound thrashing before police arrived. KOH SANTEPHEAP
