Thief learns not to cross a tuk-tuk the hard way

A 25-year-old thief was handed a hefty dose of vigilante justice after he stole a tuk-tuk and attempted to resell it on Monday in Phnom Penh’s Russei Keo district.

Police said the vehicle’s owner parked in front of his home on Sunday and left the key in the ignition.

When he returned, the tuk-tuk was gone, so he and friendly neighbours began a search.

They eventually found the suspect, after which the group beat him mercilessly before handing him over to police.
