Mob steps in to rumble B’bang mobile thief

A Battambang phone-snatching was once again foiled by the timely intervention of passersby on Tuesday.

A man was taking a stroll through town when the snatcher pounced, prompting his victim to run after him while screaming for help.

His cry of anguish had the desired effect, for the criminal was unable to escape, and instead was apprehended by a mob before being arrested.

The iPhone was returned to its rightful owner, while the suspect is languishing in the police station.
