A tapped-out teen desperate for some dough was arrested on Monday after turning his sights on an unattended tuk-tuk in Phnom Penh.
According to police, the 16-year-old was having trouble making ends meet with his construction job and began the search for an alternate income source.
Spying the tuk-tuk – whose owner was partaking in a night-time nip – the teen attempted to drive it away only to be halted by a crowd of angry villagers drawn by the driver’s cries for help.
After roughing the rider up, the group handed him to police. Kampuchea Thmey
