Boy killed in Pursat robbery

A six-year-old child is dead and his two sisters are clinging to their lives after a violent robbery in Pursat province’s Krakor district yesterday.

The boy had been killed by thieves who beat him and his sisters in the neck and temples with sticks as they stole a Honda motorcycle in Ansar Chambak commune’s Khbal Darey village, Krakor district police chief Mol Soth said.

“The two girls were bloody and we transported them to the district hospital, but their condition is very hard to survive,” he said, speaking of the eight- and 10-year-old sisters.

“We concluded that the robbers set up a plan before they took action and we are investigating over the case that will lead to the arrest of the robbers,” he said.

The victim’s parents, Um Saveoun and Chhay Chantheoun, could not be reached for comment yesterday.
