Laptop thief’s getaway foiled in low-tech fashion

On the same day in Daun Penh district, another snatching occurred, this time of the technological variety.

Police say that a man was using his laptop in the park when he took a short break to order some food.

The suspect took this window of opportunity to swoop up the device and flee.

He may have made it, too, were it not for the cries of the victim, which caused him to panic and crash his bike into a shop. Police arrested him. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
