Against her will: Guards keep girl locked up over drinks

Against her will
Police rescued a 12-year-old Por Sen Chey girl yesterday morning after she spent a night locked in a room by private security guards who accused her of stealing energy drinks.

The girl was collecting empty cans at a private house party Wednesday night and was detained after party security guards claimed they saw her steal six drinks that she then passed to friends who left the scene.

Police arrived at the scene yesterday after being notified by the girl’s family, said Mork Mey, Kran Thanong commune police chief.

“We helped her from the room, and she returned back home after questioning,” he said.

The girl denied stealing the energy drinks, and the three bodyguards have been sent to the district police station for further questioning, he said.

The girl was not harmed but was locked alone in the room overnight.

Police officials declined to comment further, and it is not yet known whether the security guards will face charges.
