Team Phanhamorn, district police chief, said that the robbers pointed a gun at Ean Tak and an axe at his wife, before tying them up along with their four children, aged between six and 15. After questioning their victims, they stole cash and belonging. Police are investigating but have yet to identify any suspects.
