Not-so-smart: texting lover’s phone pinched

A beautiful sunset drew a man and his lover to a seat under a bridge in Kampong Cham town on Saturday.

Unfortunately, the sunset and his girlfriend took a backseat to texting on his high-end smartphone, drawing the attention of passing thieves.

Police said the duo were arm in arm when two suspects showed up and demanded the smartphone. With no help nearby, the man meekly, if wisely, coughed up the phone and some cash.

Police are on the lookout for the robbers, but as they were wearing helmets, they may not be so easy to find. Deum Ampil
