Clever tailor weaves plot to catch burglars

A couple of lovelorn larcenists ended up with more than a broken heart after a burglary victim’s ploy saw them beaten by a vigilante mob in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district on Saturday.

The two men had allegedly robbed a tailor’s home, stealing his mobile phones.

Rather than bemoan his loss, the tailor enlisted the help of a young woman, whom he told to call the phones and seduce the suspects.

Once on the hook, they arranged a meeting at a restaurant.

There, an angry mob – not their date – awaited them.

The pair was thoroughly roughed up and handed to the cops.
