Phone thieves target tourist to no avail

A tourist with quick hands didn’t let phone snatchers in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district ruin his holiday when they tried lifting his cellphone on Wednesday.

Police say the Korean man was checking a GPS app for the location of his hotel when two guys pulled up and grabbed the device.

Immediately taking it back, the visitor – aided by folks nearby, of course – shouted for the thieves to be apprehended.

The pressure of the situation caught up with the suspects, as they left their scooter behind and fled. Cops came later to take the moto and record a statement from the sprightly sightseer.
