Mistaken identity leads to time at police station

Mistaken identity leads to time at police station

It was wrong place, wrong time and wrong outfits for two men in Phnom Penh who were stopped by police yesterday because of their resemblance to a pair of bag snatchers.

Speeding after two muggers in Boeung Prolit commune, cops caught the trail of two matching suspects who were reluctant to stop, fearing a shakedown.

They eventually pulled over and were cuffed and taken to the station for questioning where authorities realised they didn’t have their men.

The pair were sent on their way, but were urged to be more trusting of patrolling officers in the future.
