Police in Svay Rieng arrested two suspects yesterday on allegations of armed robbery after they allegedly held up a casino money changer at gun point and absconded with more than $50,000.
Keo Kong, Bavet town police chief, confirmed that the pair was being questioned for the Saturday night robbery near the Crown Casino but declined to comment further.
“The money which was taken has not yet been found and police continue questioning the suspects,” Kong told the Post. A police official, who asked not to be named said that the victim, businesswoman Ly Kuong Huong, was held up as she was driving her motorbike back home alone and sustained injuries after being hit in the head with the butt of a gun.
