Trio of bagsnatchers foiled by angry mob

Three young hoods made a better-than-hoped-for score, then lost it in mere moments on Wednesday after snatching a bag in Phnom Penh’s Dangkor district.

Police said their victim had been dropping her kids off at school when the three suspects, aged 18 to 21, swooped by and grabbed her purse.

The woman immediately shouted for help, and our three delinquents were quickly swarmed by villagers. Inside? A cool $1,300, some 2,000 baht ($55) and an iPhone. All were returned, while the trio was sent to jail.
