Thieves put brakes on moto by shooting driver

Two suspects hell-bent on stealing a moto in Phnom Penh’s Prampi Makara district figured shooting its driver in the leg would be the easiest way to slow it down on Wednesday.

According to police, two sisters were riding home from a party when two men began following them and ordered them to stop.

When the women refused, one of the pursuers shot the driver in the leg. The moto toppled over, and the assailants grabbed it, along with two phones and cash, and escaped. Police are still seeking their arrest. KOH SANTEPHEAP
