ALLEGED THIEVES PLUCKED BY POLICE
Two youths were detained by police in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district Tuesday after they allegedly picked the pocket of a passing bike rider. Police said the two suspects managed to make a quick getaway, but officers eventually caught the pair after the victimised motorist shouted for help. The suspects allegedly admitted they had initially planned to rob a foreigner. However, they were unsuccessful, so they opted to rob a Cambodian instead. Police have sent the suspects to court. They also sent the robbery victim to hospital because she had tumbled off her motorbike.
