As thieves go, they seem like a fun duo

A woman, 25, was left holding the bag after her unidentified male accomplice ditched her in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district on Sunday night.

The victim, a 30-year-old peanut vendor, was going about her business when the duo rolled up on a moto and grabbed her cash-filled handbag while uttering the admittedly original catchphrase “let me borrow some of your money”.

They had little time to relish their quip, however, as the vendor shouted for help, leading to a chase by villagers and police, who scared the thieves into a crash.

While the woman was caught, the man righted the bike and fled.
