General loses gun to robbers

A brigadier general of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces was relieved of his sidearm and more than three million riel (about US$750) in a robbery in the capital’s Po Sen Chey district’s Chom Chao commune on Sunday morning, police said yesterday.

No Kim Heng, Chom Chao commune police officer, said that the brigadier general, who works at the Military Engineering Unit in the Ministry of National Defence, had his car broken into while he was breakfasting at a local restaurant.

“The robbers pulled out his car’s door and looted his property while he was eating in a restaurant in Chom Chao commune. The robbers took his pistol, money, passport and a few other valuable things from his car and escaped successfully from the scene,” Kim Heng told the Post yesterday.

However, Kim Heng would not release the general’s name because it might affect his name and honour.

Morm Hor, Chief of Chom Chao Commune Police, said that police are investigating the case.
