Thai tourist parted from phone, but only briefly

A Thai tourist – perhaps a bit lacking in Phnom Penh street smarts – narrowly avoided losing his phone on Sunday while out on an evening stroll.

The hapless holidaymaker was consulting his smartphone near his hotel in Daun Penh, when a man collided with him suddenly, grabbing the phone and then sprinting off.

The tourist’s cries for help, luckily, were enthusiastically answered by bystanders, who apprehended the thief not far from the scene of the crime.
