Taking a necklace from a baby proved too tough for a 48-year-old woman in Sihanoukville on Sunday.
The suspect crept onto a neighbours’ property and made the swipe while the 8-month-old was sleeping in a hammock.
The child’s father spotted the woman as she was trying to escape through his front gate.
He grabbed the suspect and took her to the closest police station along with the evidence.
The suspect had been living in a rental apartment near the victims’ house.
