Thief has novel take on Ali’s rope-a-dope

“A capital man, in Chroy Changvar, with the rope” might be a bad guess during a game of Cluedo, but it summarised a crime that occurred in Phnom Penh on Monday when a motodop watched a client ride off with his scooter.

After being flagged down for a ride then arriving at the secluded destination, the driver found himself with a rope around his neck being threatened with strangulation.

His keys were handed over and the suspect sped off, leaving the owner to hike to the nearest police station.
