Botched getaway lands phone-snatchers in jail

In a criminal blunder that has long been a staple of these blotter chronicles, two men crashed their motorbike after snatching a woman’s mobile phone on Tuesday, foiling their own getaway.

Police said that two men whizzed by the woman, who was riding through Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district, and grabbed her iPhone.

But in their haste to escape, they crashed into another motorbike and were picked up by police. KOH SANTEPHEAP
