No call for help needed as man catches thieves

A call to a friend turned into a call to action when a man lashed out at a bandit who snatched his phone from his hand on Wednesday.

The victim was taking a stroll along a roadside in the capital’s Daun Penh district, chatting to a friend on his phone, when a motorbike sped past and a passenger on it seized the handset.

Reacting with lightning speed – and fury – the phone owner let fly, pushing the two thieves into the dirt. One was injured and both were arrested. KOH SANTEPHEAP
