Citizen’s arrest followed by citizen’s beatdown

An alleged robbery in the capital’s Daun Penh district ended in familiar fashion early on Wednesday. A motodop, 37, had parked his bike in his house and was sleeping when he heard someone cutting the gate.

He then walked outside to find a man breaking the bike’s lock, police said. The motodop shouted for help and his neighbours came out and beat the stuffing out of the would-be thief before police arrived to haul him in. KOH SANTEPHEAP
