A drive-by necklace snatching descended into a comedy of errors on Friday in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district.
A klutzy crook collided with another moto after successfully snatching the jewellery from a woman in a tuk-tuk, causing him to crash to the ground.
The villain received little sympathy after his accident, and instead was rewarded with a sound beating by passersby until the police arrived to arrest him, while also returning the purloined necklace and confiscating his moto.
