A bathroom break facilitated a break-in in Poipet on Tuesday.
Police said a woman had just arrived home on her moto, and in her haste to get to the bathroom, didn’t lock the door. Another woman, perhaps sensing an opportunity, allegedly entered just after her and attempted to steal her bag.
The homeowner, however, emerged from the bathroom just in time to spot the would-be thief and raise the alarm.
Vigilant neighbours did the rest.
