Foreigner loses phone, thief loses freedom

A man learned the hard way not to leave his smartphone unattended when three thieves nabbed the device yesterday in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district.

Police managed to catch one of the group after passersby raised the alarm though the other two escaped with phone.
