Crowd-sourced beating thwarts iPhone theft

It was an all-too-familiar case of mob justice for a would-be iPhone thief in Phnom Penh on Wednesday. According to police, a couple had parked their moto in front of a 2,500-riel shop in Meanchey district, where they went to buy a lock.

They innocently left an iPhone 6 in a compartment of their vehicle and when they left the shop caught the alleged thief red-handed, reaching into the motor bike to lift the smartphone.

Shouts of “thief” quickly drew a mob which proceeded to beat the suspect – as is the style – until police arrived and hauled him away.
