A bag grabber ruined a 25-year-old Poipet woman’s international travel arrangements on Sunday morning.
Having come to the capital to visit relatives, the woman was taking a tuk-tuk to the airport to fly to Thailand.
While waiting at traffic lights, a man on a moto pulled up and snatched her bag before speeding off.
Inside her bag was 10,000 baht (about $280), her phone, and – crucially – her passport, which resulted in a missed flight. She has filed a complaint with Kakab commune police.
