Thieves did not want to be left empty-handed

Thoroughness paid off for three capital muggers, who succeeded in making off with a fair bit of loot after warning their victims not to try any funny business like handing over an empty bag.

Making their way along Kampuchea Krom Boulevard on Wednesday night, two women were approached by men on two motorbikes brandishing a gun.

They were told to hand over a purse – and that the thieves would circle back if it turned out to be empty.

The two smartphones, jewellery and cash inside must have been enough, though, as the satchel snatchers hit the road and didn’t look back.
