Finally, the loud shouting of drunks proves useful

Revellers staggering out of a nightclub early on Monday stumbled on two men stealing a motorbike in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district.

According to police, the clubbers shouted loud enough to wake the moto’s owner, who rushed out of his home ready to defend his pride and joy.

The thieves, aged 19 and 20, tried to escape on foot, but one was chased down by the moto’s owner and the nightclub patrons, who were quick to administer a beating.

When police arrived, they made it clear that when making citizen’s arrests, it is preferable – a legal requirement even – to avoid assaulting the suspect. NOKORWAT
