Rude awakening for napping theft victim

A man who left cash in his unlocked car while he took a rest at his house in Kampong Cham on Tuesday was saved from short-term destitution by an angry mob.

After checking in for a kip, the man awoke to the noise of a rowdy crowd milling about outside. During the man’s slumber, a thief, 30, had helped himself to $100 sitting in the car.

In a rush to get away, he had caught the attention of fellow villagers who quickly turned vigilante. They detained him until police arrived. RASMEY KAMPUCHEA
