BKK bag-snatchers busted by authorities

Capital cops yesterday arrested two of four suspected bag snatchers behind the disappearance of a Chinese woman’s laptop bag while she was riding in a tuk-tuk near Boeung Keng Kang Market yesterday.

The suspects, aged 22 and 27, were both riding on a Honda motorbike with no licence plate. The police gave chase and fired two shots, which struck no one.

However, the duo picked up some injuries in the ensuing scuffle when police finally caught them. The suspects allegedly stole another woman’s bag just several hours before.
