From what the victim says, "the boys" hardly had to move from their hammocks to arrest the guy, since the local people delivered him to their door. ;-) Well done to all the locals that helped that woman out. What could have been a frightening experience for her, was turned into an exciting night out in Phnom Penh, thanks to the help that she received on the street . She will have stories to tell when she gets home.

Sadly, all attacks by snatchers don't end on such a good note, and most tourists who are victims of these thieves will only retain negative memories of being robbed in Phnom Penh. Locals get robbed more often than foreigners, but when tourists are attacked in Cambodia, they spread the news that it's not safe here, so people think twice about coming here because of safety issues.

So, no back-slaps from me. "The boys" need to step up the arrests IMO. Still too many bag and phone snatchers around, particularly in Phnom Penh.
