It takes a village … to beat a thief senseless

A young robber felt the swift hand of vigilante justice on Saturday in the capital’s Chamkarmon district. Police said a duo snatched a necklace from a young woman on a moto, only for her to give chase.

Villagers were quick to intervene, grabbing one less than 100 metres from the robbery scene. As his buddy escaped, the 20-year-old left behind was treated to an assortment of strikes.

Police put an end to the beatdown, returned the necklace and sent the bruised thief to court. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
