A bad night to be in the market for crime

A 30-year-old bag-snatcher is no doubt mulling a new line of work after his run-in with vigilantism yesterday.

Police said the thief had grabbed a bag from a woman’s shoulder as she walked outside a night market, only to realise the crowded area offered no quick exit.

The delay gave onlookers time to respond to her cry for help, and respond they did – with a beating so severe, it took police intervention to spare his life.

He’s now in hospital recovering before he heads to jail.
