A pair of bag snatchers took a quick dip in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district before police caught up with the soaked duo on Sunday.
The two men, 19 and 21, had grabbed the bag of a 27-year-old Chinese woman as she rode by on a motorbike taxi, police said. Not content to let them escape, her motodop kicked their bike, knocking them over.
Both ran to a nearby river, where they promptly jumped in and hid among the reeds. Police in a fishing boat found them about 30 minutes later. KOH SANTEPHEAP
