Beware angry mobs patrolling for thieves

Relaxation after a long day was short-lived for a moto owner in Kampong Speu province this week.

Police said the man, 34, had only just sat down to unwind when two thieves, 27 and 47, attempted to pick the lock on his wheels and drive off on them.

As is often the case, an angry mob arrived on the scene before police and administered their own justice: a severe beating. Police later arrested them, ensuring the owner could finally get some rest. NOKORWAT
