Locals help tourist, spill blood in process

A tourist at Phnom Penh’s Wat Phnom had his heart momentarily warmed on Tuesday when a group of residents saved his bag from being stolen but likely had second thoughts when they proceeded to beat the thief to a pulp.

Police said the 23-year-old Canadian had parked his bicycle and forgotten he left his bag with camera and passport inside.

An opportunistic thief made his move, only to be spotted by keen-eyed bystanders, who pounded him into a short hospital stay. DEUM AMPIL
