Technology foils two would-be bike snatchers

Technology foils two would-be bike snatchers

A Phnom Penh woman had technology – and the mob – on her side when two men tried to steal her moto yesterday.

Parking the scooter in front of her Daun Penh district home, the owner heard sounds from outside and saw two suspects walking the bike away.

The ride was outfitted with an automatic key so, unable to start it, the duo were surrounded when villagers answered the woman’s cries for help.

One of the thieves managed to flee, but his buddy was given some jabs before police carted him downtown.
