Moto thief off like a shot, until he’s shot himself

A moto thief took one for the team after police gave chase and opened fire as he tried to make his getaway in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district yesterday morning.

After the suspect, Tith To Ny, 23, had held up two Scoopy drivers early yesterday morning, police were alerted and pursued the young bandit, opening fire at To Ny when they thought he had reached for a gun.

His accomplices escaped unharmed, but To Ny was left with a broken leg from a bullet fired by the cops. KOH SANTEPHEAP
