Thieves make 100km dash, but to no avail

A well-coordinated police effort saw a thuggish pair of motorbike robbers nabbed in Battambang town on Monday – more than 100 kilometres away from where they’d done the deed. Police say the suspects hijacked the motorbike off a couple driving down a quiet road in Poipet.

When the pair put up a fight, the robbers beat them bloody before hightailing it. The couple was hospitalised, but not before filing a report that led to the duo’s capture one province away. Deum Ampil
