A gang of moto thieves didn’t get very far when they failed to realise four men squeezed on to a bike might raise suspicions.
The group was arrested on Saturday after they beat a 20-year-old man in Phnom Penh’s Chamkamon district out of his wheels.
Police said the victim had stopped to talk to his cousin when the thieves butted in offering prostitutes.
When the victim declined, the men punched and kicked him, and then took off on the moto. Police apprehended the suspects later the same night and sent them off to court. Deum Ampil
