Tuk-tuk thief chased, caught, roughed up

Memo to would-be tuk-tuk thieves in Por Sen Chey district: don’t even think about it. One man did yesterday and found himself running from a mob.

According to police, the owner parked in front of his home and went to sleep. The suspect then jumped in but was quickly asked by a neighbour what he was doing.

He slunk off quietly, only to return later and steal the tuk-tuk. This time, both the neighbour and the owner saw him and gave chase, joined by villagers.

They caught up, beat him up, and police picked him up. NOKORWAT
