Theme park echoes with screams one more time

The dream is over for the now-shuttered Dreamland amusement park but not, apparently, for the area’s bag snatchers.

Police said a 37-year-old German national was walking past the empty Phnom Penh theme park on Tuesday at noon when two men on a moto flew past and grabbed her bag.

The good times ended abruptly for the duo though when the tourist screamed for help and locals and police swarmed to cut off their escape route.

Panicked, they abandoned the bike and fled on foot. One escaped, one was captured.
