A seasoned moto thief got more than he bargained for in the capital’s Meanchey district on Wednesday.
Police said the 21-year-old had targeted the bike of an ice seller out on his rounds.
But when the thief went to work on the lock, customers at the shop spotted him and began shouting, drawing the attention of passers-by.
The man, predictably, received a thrashing at the scene from villagers until police arrived. He subsequently confessed to multiple moto thefts. DEUM AMPIL
