A pair of alleged jewellery thieves were apprehended by locals in Phnom Penh’s Russey Keo district and turned over to police on Sunday.
The victim, a 40-year-old woman, collided with the two young men while riding through the district during the Pchum Ben holiday.
The woman’s necklace was scooped up by one of the two men as they tried to flee, but locals halted them in their tracks. The suspects claimed they were mechanics on their way to town to buy spare parts. Nokorwat
