A botched bag-snatching landed a man in custody in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district police on Sunday.
Police said a 25-year-old NGO worker was riding a motorbike home from the office when two men on a moto attempted to grab her bag.
Both bikes ended up crashing. Nearby motodops were quick enough to apprehend one of the men, but the other made good his escape.
A search of the first suspect’s person reportedly yielded tools for breaking moto locks.
