Burglar thwarted by watchful neighbours

A husband-and-wife crime-fighting duo managed to apprehend a burglar on Monday evening in the capital’s Tuol Kork district thanks to the watchful eye of a neighbour.

The neighbour noticed a man trying to force his way into a house, and so alerted the residents.

Distinctly displeased by the intruder’s unsolicited entrance, the husband and wife decided to take the law into their own hands, delivering a burglar beat-down with the help of other neighbours before police arrived.
