Teen’s stealth mode could use some work

Police in Kandal’s Takhmao district arrested a teenager on Sunday for stealing a motorbike from an unsuspecting woman who left her key in the vehicle’s ignition.

The woman, 32, was preparing lunch when the suspect, 17, waltzed up to her front yard and tried to sneak off with the bike. Spotting the teen, the woman bolted for her door and caught him before neighbours came to her aid.

The teen told police that he travelled from Phnom Penh for the sole purpose of robbing the town blind. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
