Buying a snazzy phone proves schoolboy error

A young boy’s new smartphone drew the wrong kind of attention in the capital on Saturday. Police said the 14-year-old had left school to buy a juice when a man approached and said he was to take him to his waiting father.

Apparently never having seen an afterschool special, the boy followed, only to find himself facing three strangers and a drawn knife. Terrified, he quickly gave up the phone. Luckily for him, a group of fellow students witnessed the incident and called police, who managed to arrest all three suspects. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
