City traffic foils thief in Tuol Kork phone snatch

Phnom Penh traffic is often the cause for consternation, not celebration, but one crook’s phone snatching was scuppered thanks to the capital’s congestion yesterday morning.

Eyeing the tempting target chatting on her phone on Tuol Kork’s Street 27, the man made the grab, but found his getaway route obstructed by a tuk-tuk.

Swerving to avoid the tuk-tuk, he collided with a moto and fell to the ground. In an ironic twist, the moto belonged to his intended victim. The klutzy crook is now in Tuol Kork police station.
