Meanchey mob means business, beats suspect

Meanchey mob means business, beats suspect

A broken moto lock nearly resulted in broken bones thanks to a quickly formed posse on Monday.

Police said two men found an unattended bike in the capital’s Meanchey district and quickly went to work on the lock.

The bike’s owner saw the attempt and began shouting for help. Unfortunately for the two, villagers were quick to respond, beating one as the other high-tailed it.

While half the duo escaped, it won’t be for long as the arrested thief quickly gave up his buddy. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
