One wedding and a funeral – and a robbery

A pair of Phnom Penh thieves managed to ruin both mourning and matrimony on Wednesday.

Police said the duo began by snatching the bag of a grief-stricken young woman returning home from a funeral.

Unfortunately for them, her cries for help prompted a chase from local police, causing the two men to crash their moto directly into a wedding.

Appalled at the violent intrusion, the guests dispensed a shower of kicks and slaps before police arrived.
