Jewellery snatcher ensnared by police

A youth from Banteay Meanchey has felt the sting of bling after he was arrested for allegedly snatching a woman’s necklace yesterday.

Police reported that the victim was riding her moto home from a party when the suspect pounced on her accoutrements, injuring her in his attempt to lift the precious metal.

His satisfaction was short-lived, however, as he was spotted by traffic police and apprehended. The victim has been sent to hospital for treatment.
