Attempted Robbery of British Man & Girlfriend This Week Caught on GoPro (VIDEO)

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Shouldn't be too dangerous if she was wearing protective gear and held the bag out so it was easy to take.
I've contemplated on creating a bag with a fluorescent paint bomb (strong enough to knock them off their bike but not blow off their fingers)

Or with a metal mesh that can shock the thieves..

Or both Image

Try this - much more appropriate for the aspiring man about town with girlfriend, when encountering street punks.

In reality, what will happen to the Khmer? We always hear about arrests, but never hear about the sentence.

Depending the money situation.

Simple Theft is 6 months to 3 years.

Aggravated Theft from 3 Years to 10 Years.

In reality, they are guaranteed 'the beats', first and foremost.

Afterwards, their families can buy them out before court or strike a deal for a reduced sentence.

They are re-educated and sign a paper not to do it again.

If caught again they will receive the sentencing as above.

The equivalent in the UK of 'Community Service" but without the service part, or a suspended sentence.

Good news and good police work hopefully limiting this type of crime. We see "bag snatching" often results in injury with loss/damage of belongings to the victims. Artemis and his girlfriend likewise and also going through the order, so did another lady victim in the last weeks news, her being victim to 3 guys aged 16-18. Both incidents were on film and must be of help to the authorities in catching the culprits, of what would surely be considered an aggravated crime.
Will the criminals walk? Will victims be compensated?
Always "hope" but never "expect".
