Crime Update: Thieves rob coffee shop

Crime Update

Ten people were robbed at gunpoint of cash, jewellery and mobile phones at an upmarket coffee shop in Phnom Penh on Monday morning, an official and victims said, adding that no one was injured in the incident and that the value of the goods stolen was not known.

Ouk Phan, the commune chief of Boeung Keng Kang II commune, was one of those robbed at the Deli coffee shop on Sihanouk Boulevard near the Yukunchor High School west of Monivong Boulevard. He told the Post on Tuesday that the robbers wore masks and helmets, making them impossible to identify."Two of the men pointed their weapons at me and tried to take my ring, but weren't able to. They demanded money and I agreed to give them US$250," he said. "One of them hit me while another threatened the other customers with his gun, telling them to be quiet, and then took their jewellery, phones and cash. "An eyewitness who knows the identities of the attackers said the five-man gang arrived on two motorbikes. Two of the gang stood guard outside the coffee shop during the raid. No one has been arrested in connection with the robbery. Ouk Phan said he was working with national Military Police and local police in the search for the men.
