Four thieves, one moto and a lousy escape plan

Four men aged 25 to 34 were so desperate for a joy ride on Tuesday, that they beat a motodop senseless in public.

The driver had parked his bike in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district while catching a bite to eat when four construction workers he didn’t know approached him with sticks and meat cleavers.

The motodop ran away, and the thieves made a tight getaway, cramming together on the bike.

Three of the men were arrested shortly after and police are still looking for the last suspect, who had better luck on foot. Kampuchea Thmey
