Accused thief learns lesson in ‘crowd control’

Snatching a phone out of someone’s hands in the middle of a crowded market should be relatively straightforward, that is unless the crowd helps arrest you.

Police said a 23-year-old was chatting away in the middle of the capital’s Meanchey district market when a suspect grabbed his phone. He couldn’t get away though, given the large crowd, and several onlookers helped to hold him until market security intervened. KOH SANTEPHEAP
