Phone-snatching sucker-puncher busted by cops

The reign of terror of an allegedly habitual phone thief – and assault aficionado – came to an end in Phnom Penh’s Russey Keo district on Sunday.

According to police, the suspect’s most recent victim had filed a complaint after being attacked on the street and having his phone stolen.

After a quick search, police brought in the alleged attacker, who reportedly folded under questioning, saying Sunday’s punch-snatch combo had been one of many. After further questioning, police say they will send the man to court. DEUM AMPIL
