SINGAPORE - Three youths had their scheme to rob a cabby all planned out - one would grab his neck from behind, the second would assault him, and the third would grab the money.

But when they did the deed in the early hours of Feb 2, they fled with a very small loot, and made a big mistake.

The coin pouch they managed to snatch contained only $5, and one of them left their iPhone in the vehicle.

On Tuesday, Muhammad Fauzi Fitri Kamaruzaman, 18, and Muhammad Aizan Abdullah, 17, were sentenced to probation in a community court after pleading guilty to robbing Mr Abdul Latiff Ismail, 53.
