A capital girl cried wolf – “thief”, actually – but ended up at the police station along with her boyfriend and his friend on Saturday in Phsar Thmey III commune.
After getting in a row with her beau next to their parked motorbike, the boy and his buddy started walking away.
The girlfriend screamed that she had been robbed and a mob assembled to apprehend the young men.
Police were called and all three were brought to the station, but released when the truth became clear.
Cops held onto the scooter until they could bring documents proving they owned it.
