A desperate burglar fallen on hard times forgot to make sure no one was home before breaking and entering on Monday night.
The 22-year-old unemployed man broke a fence and slipped into a house in Phnom Penh Prampi Makara district to look for valuables.
A 35-year-old woman living in the home saw him and shouted for help before the thief could make his great escape. Neighbours helped detain the suspect until police arrived. NOKORWAT
