Woman bails as vendor ignores stop requests

Woman bails as vendor ignores stop requests

A Kandal woman learned there’s no such thing as a free ride, at least until police show up.

After visiting her sister in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district on Tuesday, the garment worker found she didn’t have cash for the trip home.

Setting out on foot, she came across a man selling snacks whom she asked for a lift as far as the flyover.

Obliging, the vendor failed to slow down on the bridge so she jumped off and shouted for help.

Cops came and the man claimed he hadn’t been paid for the ride. He was sent on his way and police drove the woman the rest of the way home.
