Vengeful husband lays smackdown on robber

Vengeful husband lays smackdown on robber

A chivalrous – if pugilistic – husband in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district beat a man senseless on Tuesday, a month after he allegedly stole the handbag of the vengeful spouse’s wife.

According to police, the woman and her husband had been crossing the street when the suspects snatched the woman’s bag.

Having gotten a good look at the perp’s face, the husband spotted the man again at a market a month later.

Not content to wait for police, the husband pounced on the man and beat him until cops broke up the fight and brought both in for questioning.
