Victim tumbles but her snatchers pummelled

A snatched bag saw a masseuse take a tumble on Friday, but her assailants were the ones who got the worst of it.

Police said the woman was riding pillion on a moto in the capital’s Daun Penh district when two suspects sped alongside and yanked the purse held under her arm so violently that she fell from the bike.

While she sustained minor injuries, patrolling police quickly cut off the bag snatchers’ escape route and helpful locals stepped in to rain punches on the hapless duo until police saw fit to haul them to the station.
