Two would-be bag snatchers were arrested following a foiled robbery on Sisowath Quay on Friday night.
The victims, a mother and son, were driving home on their moto after attending a wedding earlier in the evening on Koh Pich.
The alleged thieves drove up close to the victims and tried to snatch the passengers handbag.
The driver fought back and both vehicles toppled. Police on patrol on the riverside spotted the accident and arrested the men.
