Bananas, bamboo behind botched bike banditry

TWO devout youngsters opted against turning the other cheek on Saturday, foiling an attempted motorbike robbery in the process.

Police said the Sihanoukville teens, 16 and 18, were offering bananas to the village spirit after successfully passing their high school exam when two men materialised with a bamboo stick and bad intentions.

Unfortunately for the thieves, the stick wasn’t as intimidating as they had hoped and the teens proceeded to turn the tables on them, subduing one for the cops, while the other turned tail and ran. Nokorwat
