Mob, moto accident foil capital theft attempt

A repeat offender was arrested after justice, in the form of angry villagers and police officers, caught up with him following a robbery.

A girl, 16, was on a motorbike when the man, 27, allegedly snatched her phone and tried to escape on a moto in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district on Friday.

The girl shouted for help and upon seeing villagers tailing him, the suspect fell from his bike in panic. He was badly beaten before police arrived. The man was previously behind bars for robbery. Koh Santepheap
