Violent thieves nab bag after high-speed chase

A young Phnom Penh woman is lucky to be alive after a bag snatching got violent on Saturday. Police said the 27-year-old had exchanged money at a Daun Penh district market for a planned holiday when two men followed her on moto.

Fearing she was being followed, she sped up, leading them on a chase through the city streets. The chase ended abruptly when one of the thugs pulled a pistol, shot her in the leg and made off with the bag and the $200 inside. DEUM AMPIL
