Before the incident, the victim and his wife took a tuk-tuk on street 51 in the direction from south to north. Suddenly, the suspects rode a Nex motorbike near the victim and snatched a phone from the foreign man who screamed for help.
Then the two suspects tried to escape, but the local police arrested one of them. Another suspect, named as Si, a 17-year-old boy, ran away.
The victim took his phone from the suspect and drove away in the tuktuk without filing a complaint with police.
