Armed robbers tie up cattle exporter’s family

AXE-WIELDING robbers who tied up a cattle exporter’s family before stealing 30 million riel (US$7,500) are being hunted by police. Five burglars, armed with a gun and an axe, stole into the home of 52-year-old Ean Tak on Tuesday night in Kep province’s Damnak Changaur district as his family were sleeping. 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.
