Locals put the ‘vigilant’ in ‘vigilante justice’

No, it's not deja vu, it’s just another mob violence story in blotter. This tale took place in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district yesterday, when a 48-year-old man allegedly tried to heist a bike when a couple parked it outside their home.

According to police, neighbours heard him start the engine and, realising he was not the bike’s owner, proceeded to distribute a little extrajudicial justice in the form of their fists. Arriving police extricated him and sent him to court. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
