Purse thief pursued, pinched by Penh pal

A teenage fashionista was forced to swap a stolen handbag for handcuffs in Phnom Penh on Sunday. Police said the 18-year-old suspect stole the bag from a 17-year-old garment worker she had recently made friends with while staying at her house.

But the suspect hadn’t banked on bumping into her “frenemy” at a concert on Sunday night. The thief’s former pal made a citizen’s arrest and handed her over to police. NOKORWAT
