Mob-bashing used to tourist’s advantage

Score one for the tourists after a potential phone theft gone awry left two suspects battered and bruised.

The Canadian traveller was using his phone to take a picture in the capital’s Chamkarmon district on Tuesday when two men on a moto swooped by and snatched the device.

The tourist called for help, and nearby motodops and tuk-tuk drivers came to the rescue, giving the crooks a sound thrashing before police intervened. KOH SANTEPHEAP
