Cap­i­tal hel­met thief hun­gry for a whip­pin’

The Phnom Penh Post - - NATIONAL -

A THIEF look­ing out for his own safety wound up sur­ren­der­ing his well-be­ing af­ter a hel­met steal­ing at­tempt ended with a vig­i­lante beat­ing in the cap­i­tal’s Prampi Makara dis­trict on Wed­nes­day. The would-be vic­tim spot­ted the thiev­ery on a se­cu­rity cam­era, im­me­di­ately rush­ing out­side and bel­low­ing for help. Nearby vil­lagers were happy to oblige, ap­pre­hend­ing the al­leged bur­glar and re­ward­ing him with a few choice punches. The bank­rupt bur­glar told po­lice he stole the hel­met in or­der to pay for his lunch. But his sob story didn’t get him far, as cops sent him to the com­mune po­lice sta­tion.
