Canine collision curtails crook’s caper in Kandal

A 40-year-old bodyguard in Kandal province was reminded why dogs are often said to be man’s best friend on Wednesday, after one mutt inadvertently saved his moto from theft.

Another man from his village pinched the moto but the getaway came to an abrupt halt. The suspect collided with the dog, crashed and was knocked out.

This had the added benefit of making his arrest easier, though police were kind enough to take him to hospital, albeit in handcuffs.
