Chivalrous victim stops mob justice on burglar

A young Tuol Kork district engineer lent the cops a hand on Saturday, performing a citizen’s arrest in his own backyard.

Police said a 28-year-old female suspect had broken in after hopping the man’s fence and snagged more than $200 cash before attempting to escape.

Unluckily for her, the man was in the next room and managed to hold her for the cops.

Luckily for her, he was also gallant enough to prevent a quick-forming crowd of villagers from putting the boots to her before authorities arrived. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
