Motodop’s change of job harshly judged by mob

Motodop’s change of job harshly judged by mob

A capital moto taxi driver took up the seemingly more lucrative career of bag and jewellery snatching on Friday, but his first attempt could not have gone more spectacularly wrong.

After eyeing his target in a tuk-tuk on Monivong Boulevard, he pulled alongside and made his move.

He became entangled with the tuk-tuk, causing him to crash, which drew the attention – and the fists – of bystanders.

Police arrived and saved the man from the wrath of the mob, before taking him to the station.
