Teens narrowly escape mob beating with lives

Two young bag snatchers on a moto got more than they bargained for on Tuesday night when their getaway was foiled, first by a bus, then an angry mob.

The two 17-year-old males allegedly tried to snatch the bag of a Chinese national as she stepped out of her car to buy a bus ticket from a store near Wat Phnom.

However, as the heist was attempted at high speed, the men lost control of the moto and ran into the back of a parked bus.

An angry mob beat them up before the police arrived and saved them from further damage.
