Battambang bum botches bike theft in capital

Traffic in Phnom Penh can be painfully slow, a lesson learned the hard way by one recent Battambang transplant.

The man nailed the first step of stealing a moto but – thanks in part to criminal incompetence and vigilant neighbours – fluffed the rest.

Having unlocked the moto, he failed to start it, and instead of speeding to freedom received an all too stationary smackdown from neighbours.

Once he’d been sufficiently duffed up, the crook was passed to commune police.
