Sword-swinging sextet stymied by capital cops

Six thieves in need of extra wheels tried to nab themselves a pair of motos on Monday in a bungled crime that saw their gang torn apart.

The six suspects were driving through Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district when they spotted a group driving on two motos in front of them.

Armed with a samurai sword, the gang threatened the victims to give up their wheels. But police were hot on their tails and arrested two of the thieves, while the other four managed to escape. KOH SANTEPHEAP
