No honour among thieves in capital

A trio of mobile phone thieves abandoned one of their own after he fell off their motorbike and was arrested in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district Sunday.

Police say a woman was walking on the sidewalk, talking, when three men on a moto allegedly snatched the phone from her hand. She cried for help, startling the thieves into a quick acceleration which caused the rear passenger, 19, to fall off.

Angry citizens roughed him up before police arrived while his accomplices, both 18, escaped with the phone.
