Thief’s new ride not fit for a speedy getaway

No doubt cursing his poor luck after his moto engine blew, a Kampong Cham town man’s day was about to get considerably worse on Saturday.

Police said as he waited with the moto by the side of the road, a man on a bicycle pedalled in out of nowhere and clobbered him on the head.
