One injured in poorly conceived snatching

One of two mobile phone thieves was left badly injured in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district on Monday, after they crashed a motorbike while fleeing the scene of a snatching.

Cops said a police patrol gave chase after seeing the pair, aged 23 and 29, attempting to get away.

Apparently startled, the thieves ran into a car, leaving one unconscious on the street.

His partner continued fleeing on the bike, but was nabbed 2 kilometres away.

The phone was recovered and returned to its owner.
