Thief gets a flogging for attempted chain snatch

A 26-year-old would-be mugger was publically shamed on Saturday. The man attempted to snatch a woman’s necklace as she was walking down a quiet street in Phnom Penh’s Porsenchey district.

The man threatened the victim with a knife but she fought back, sustaining serious injuries. The neighbours witnessed the attack and beat the suspect before police came to arrest him. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
