S’ville bag snatcher no match for Swede pipes

A small time score will be a source of big-time regret for the Sihanoukville 19-year-old who tried to pull it off yesterday.

Police said the teen had been following a Swedish tourist on Ochheuteal Beach when he made his move and snatched her bag.

She got her bag back, which held an iPhone 6 and seven whole dollars.
