Phnom Penh: 2 female tourists had their bag snatched on the corner of Norodom Blvd and Street 144 last night after leaving Pontoon and heading back to their hotel on Street 19.

The victims decided to walk home, and along the way a man on a motorbike with no license plate grabbed one of their backpacks.

It contained a camera, an iPhone 5, $45 and other things.

The 2 Australians filed a police report in hopes that the police will catch the bag snatcher.

Surely it would be more newsworthy if they DIDN'T get robbed leaving Pontoon at night and walking near GSM.

And some travel advice from a cute Thai girl who often comments on our CEO news articles:

"Happy trip in Cambodia please attention to heading back to hotel at midnight in Phnom Penh city therefore they have to get in taxi b'cause safety of one's family. The governor of Phnom Penh city hasn't enough camera supplying on the road so it's very easy to criminal or robber,stealing action indeed,I think ..I used to visiting at Jakarta city in Indonesia at midnight but at there,no safety too,Indonesian guide told me that.i do hope it's better if the governor must do at all cameras supplying on the road to be voluntary for foreigner's safety who wanna to visiting in Cambodia and also Cambodian people security.that can help to reduce all these prob ..oh no the police can't help you while lost something on your hand ,what is important must keep it by yourself ImageImageImagelol"

Probably the reason a million Cambodian women have "Lonely Girl" or something else nonsensical in their Facebook names, I don't know.
