Theatregoers treated to unexpected live show

Two robbers scored their 15 seconds of fame on Saturday when they foolishly put on a show – literally in front of an audience.

A crowd was gathered outside a cinema in the capital’s Chamkarmon district when two men snatched a purse from a woman.

Security guards were among those who witnessed the robbery and quickly pounced, detaining the pair until police arrived.

In a rather predictable final scene, the robbers admitted to committing similar acts before. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
