An Issan motorcyclist was arrested after allegedly snatching a teenager’s purse, then slamming into a wall trying to escape.
Moo Singboon, 29, of Suphanburi was captured by police while attempting to flee on foot following the March 27 bag snatch and bike crash. He sustained injuries from both the motorcycle accident and falling into a roadside ditch while running from officers.
Sureeporn Sornwieng, 18, called police after Moo allegedly drove by her on Soi Batman and grabbed her handbag, which contained 2,700 baht, an iPhone and documents. After snatching the bag, the suspect lost control and drove into a fence.
Moo Singboon’s attempted bag snatch may go down as the worst attempt ever.
He was apprehended with the bag, still containing all the items claimed lost.
Police said Moo confessed to the crime, saying he needed the money to buy school uniforms for his child.
