Ambushed phone fixer couldn’t call for help

Surrounded by phones but with no time to call police, a local phone repairman had little chance when surrounded by four thieves on Wednesday.

Alone and with few options, he wisely gave up his moto, though no word on any swiped phones. He filed a complaint to police, but with no description of their faces, arrests face long odds. KOH SANTEPHEAP
