Aborted tent theft sees homeless man beaten

A citizen's arrest prevented the theft of a tent in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district on Saturday. Police said the suspect, a local homeless man, had a reputation for stealing things at night.

On the day in question, however, when he went to pinch a tent from the back of a parked truck, the owner saw him and detained him.
