Kandal province, Cambodia News: Lin Mey Seang, a 21-year-old female student from Deum Mein village, Takhmao city, chased down two thugs who stole her phone while she was driving her motorbike in the village on 18 March 2020, at 4pm.
Authorities said that the young woman was riding along on her motorbike, when two men in their twenties on a black Honda pulled alongside her and snatched the woman's phone.
The victim screamed for help and some people joined her to chase the thieves. One of them was intercepted directly by the crowd, and the other one tried to escape by swimming in a pond, but he was fished out by the authorities.

Both thieves were taken to Takhmao police station for questioning and to be charged with aggravated theft. The phone was returned undamaged to the woman student.

See, I told you guys before,, there are a lot of good civilised people live out that way. No blood, no black eyes or broken noses.

What a pity.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

These two definitely bring shame to their trade. It’s certainly not their day, it sucks to be you two but for sure you deserve it !
