Man clubbed in mystery swap of tuk-tuk for moto

Police are scratching their heads over why exactly a thief in the capital’s Sen Sok district swapped a tuk-tuk for a moto in a Sunday night attack.

The violent swap came as a security guard patrolling the area on motorbike was hailed by a man in a tuk-tuk. Stopping to see what he wanted, the man was then poleaxed by an iron bar.

The thief then abandoned the tuk-tuk and fled on the moto, leading police to surmise he may have stolen the large vehicle first only to find it a lousy getaway vehicle. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
