Monk lives up to his robes, calms angry mob

A monk showed an angry mob how to be the better person in Phnom Penh on Monday after stepping in to prevent a man who had just try tried to steal his laptop from getting a beating.

The monk’s computer was reportedly lifted as he ate breakfast at his pagoda in Daun Penh district, but a group of boys living there spotted the act and set out to rough him up.

But the monk called the boys off, insisting they wait for police to come.

The suspect was identified as a local homeless man who spent a lot of time around the pagoda.
