Purse-wielding hero breaks up moto theft

An alleged thief failed to make off with a motorbike after he was stopped by a Japanese woman’s expertly wielded handbag in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district on Monday.

Police said the man, 30, was trying to steal a 34-year-old woman’s motorbike but was stopped after the Japanese woman came to the rescue, hitting the man with her handbag until police came to arrest him. The suspect confessed and was sent to court. NOKORWAT
