Moto thief meets mob justice after dirty trick

A car theft confidence trick ended in a dose of instant karma in Pursat town yesterday after a man feigned injury to get a motorist to stop, before speeding off in his vehicle.

The 23-year-old thief reportedly blocked the road pretending to have an injured leg so a driver would stop to help him.

But after making off, the man ended up with real injuries when his victim called for help and an angry mob formed, causing the man to slam into a wall before being pummelled by the assembled crowd.
