Students snared for bag snatching by police

A pair of capital high schoolers are cooling their heels in jail after a bag snatching gone awry yesterday.

Police said the duo had swooped down on a South Korean woman as she exited her tuk-tuk in Tuol Kork district.

Grabbing the bag and tearing off by moto, the two teens were spotted by military police who gave chase and ran them down.

The two 17-year-olds were detained while the woman got back the purse, which contained $155 and 2,000 Korean won.
