C’est beaucoup! French woman’s bag saved

Two thieves found themselves hauled off to the proverbial Bastille after they were ambushed by a crowd of capital bystanders after snatching a French expat’s bag in Daun Penh district.

The woman was riding a bicycle on Monday when the suspects veered close and came away with her satchel.

Nearby citizens saw what happened and chased the men down until they crashed into a parked tuk-tuk. Cops soon arrived to send one of the culprits to Calmette, and bring the other in for questioning.
