Eye in the sky helps thwart motobike thief

A motorbike thief got a taste of mob justice in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district on Wednesday, after botching his getaway.

The man had reportedly lifted a bike outside its owner’s home, but was spotted on a security camera by the owner, who gave chase with a posse of local residents.

After the thief ditched the bike 100 metres down the road he was set upon by the mob and badly injured, before police carted him off to hospital.
