‘Push bike’ thieves lack drive to get away

A man woke up in Phnom Penh yesterday to an unwelcome surprise when he found his motorbike had vanished from his guesthouse overnight.

The snail’s-pace snatchers were moving so slowly, in fact, that the victim was able to go report them to police, who apprehended them while still pushing the bike.
