No great escape for hemmed-in bag thief

A habitual bag-snatcher has taken his last swipe. The man, 22, was apprehended on Saturday after stealing from a woman in Kampong Cham town.

Police said the woman, 25, was riding her motorbike to a local market when the suspect spotted and followed her until they reached a more secluded place where he snatched her bag and escaped.

The woman raised a ruckus, and police in the area blocked the roads until the suspect was arrested. Nokorwat
