Cambodia News (Phnom Penh): The latest (reported) riverside phone snatching attack, targeting a foreign tourist, occurred on January 15, 2020, at 5 pm. A Scottish man, NIAL WATT FINLEY, a 25-year-old tourist, had his phone snatched on riverside, on street 130, Sangkat Psar Kandal, Phnom Penh.

Fortunately, police apprehended the suspect, Nao Mao, a 20-year-old man, and confiscated a One Plus6T phone which was returned to the victim. The suspect is believed to be part of a gang operating on riverside and is being questioned as police search for the other gang members.

This guy shows a lot more respect receiving his goods back than the lefty backpacker with a cig in one hand. Well done, sir.

He doesn't look like the type of guy I'd try to steal a phone off.
Just goes to show that it could happen to anyone. Glad he got it back.

Good work.

That's not a cigarette, it's the chromed frame of the chair behind, and I doubt he cared too much which hand she used, I'm sure a cop would rather meet a cute woman than a cookie cutter tattooed hipster.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

I dunno, Gen.
He looks like the classic "i demand everything handed to me on platter, NOW please!" hipster type to me.
The attitude of a mans right hand says a lot about his attitudes all 'round.

And anyway, Lefties dress much better, always look cool and unfazed no matter the circumstances, and are far more attractive than ethically free-zone hipsters. Always
The photographs clearly demonstrate that too.

I partly blame the police or lack of police I should say. Why are there no police walking the streets or posted in various place near the riverside? They just sit drinking or have an evening job somewhere.
