Bag snatcher messed with the wrong ’hood

A classic case of mob justice saw an alleged bag snatcher assaulted in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district on Saturday.

Police said a Chinese man was crossing a street when the suspect zipped by on a moto and snagged his bag.

The victim was unable to nab the suspect himself but, luckily for him, a friendly neighbourhood mob formed, stopping the suspect and savagely beating him until police arrived and sent him to court.
