A Phnom Penh couple’s New Year’s resolution may have been to show more forgiveness, as they did towards a man who stole and tried to sell their phone in Russey Keo district.
According to the police, the pair had parked their moto in front of their home to use the restroom before heading back out, but left a phone on the back seat.
Upon returning, they realised the phone was stolen and rushed to a nearby phone shop, finding the thief about to sell the phone.
After bringing the man to the commune police office, pity swayed them to not press charges. Instead they asked police to make the perp sign a New Year’s resolution of his own: not to steal again.
