Man’s ride jacked as he ran away from home

One young man’s plan to run away from home was short lived in the capital’s Russey Keo district on Monday night.

After getting into a row with his father, the lad headed toward a guesthouse where he planned to spend the night.

When he pulled over to answer his phone, however, two suspects dashed up, pushed him off the moped and rode away on it.

Hopefully his old man wasn’t too peeved to pick him up from the station as that’s where he ended up going to report the theft of his bike.
