Purse snatchers get bagged in S’ville heist

A teacher in Sihanoukville was reunited with her handbag after two teenagers reached into her classroom and swiped it from her desk.

The pair tried to make off on a motorbike before ditching it and trying to outrun police.

While one got away, a 14-year-old was snared with the bag, and the motorbike was confiscated.

Cops said nothing had been taken from the bag, and they’re looking for the captured boy’s accomplice.
