Thief realises tuk-tuk not best getaway vehicle

A badge seemingly did little good for a capital cop who barely managed to keep his moto from being stolen on Wednesday night.

Police said the officer was driving home alongside two relatives on another bike when a tuk-tuk driver intentionally crashed into him, punched him in the face and attempted to steal his vehicle.

When the relatives tried to intervene, the tuk-tuk driver produced a pistol and then fled. Given that tuk-tuks go roughly half the speed of a moto, he was followed, cornered and forced to flee on foot. NOKORWAT
