She is kind of walking around saying, "here, somebody help me with my bag..."

She's still got the plastic bag in her hand as she chases them, what did they grab?
Edit. Ah right the bag in front.

PP has got a very bad repetition of this crime! But it happens in most cities in the world for the thieving opportunists.
Take care of your valuables.

Nowadays in London not only do the kids on mopeds rob you of your belongings, they throw acid in your face.
Makes Cambodia look like Switzerland. :(

When she runs after them, I couldn't stop the Benny Hill music playing in my head.

Expats in Cambodia have no idea how relatively violent crime-free this country is.
