Teacher gets lesson in Phnom Penh petty theft

Teacher gets lesson in Phnom Penh petty theft

A teacher was left in a critical condition after a street robbery in Phnom Penh’s Russei Keo district took an unanticipated turn on Sunday.

The 50-year-old woman was riding her motorbike home from a local market when two men followed her and snatched her bag and a necklace.

But the victim’s vehicle fell on her during the theft, causing her to hit her head on the road and lose consciousness.

The badly injured tutor was sent to hospital by police who are on the lookout for the thieves.
