Female purse snatcher’s skills found wanting

A sticky-fingered female thief became unstuck when her victim realised she was being robbed in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district on Sunday.

The victim was walking down the street at about 11:30am when she noticed her purse had just been snatched from her unzipped bag.

She immediately yelled for help and bystanders stopped the 18-year-old perpetrator before she could get away. The suspect was subsequently taken to the local police station.
