Chase target slips away by slipping into a river

An alleged phone-snatching in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district on Sunday landed one man in hot water and another in the Tonle Sap.

According to police, the two suspects were walking through a traffic jam on the capital’s riverside when they snatched the phone of a foreigner sitting in a stalled tuk-tuk.

Nearby police gave chase, catching one of the men, but lost the other when he leapt into the river. DEUM AMPIL
