A pair of alleged Kandal province moto thieves failed to account for every contingency during a Monday night robbery.
Police said the duo had run down a motorist on his way home from Phnom Penh, forcing him to crash and sustain serious injuries.
One then hopped on the bike and they both sped off with police in hot pursuit. Their hoped-for escape petered out when the victim’s moto ran out of gas.
Showing a rare bit of honour among thieves, the gassed-up cohort stopped to aid his chum, giving police just enough time to catch them. KOH SANTEPHEAP
