Kampot man murdered in own home

A man was shot dead on Sunday night during a break-in at his home in Kampot province’s Teuk Chhou district, police said yesterday.

Teuk Chhou district deputy police chief Nub Chanpheap said yesterday that three robbers had cut through the man’s fence to gain access to the house before shooting the victim twice.

“The homeowner, Nang Nath, 58, was seriously injured, and his family members sent him for treatment at a hospital in Phnom Penh, but unfortunately he died on the way,” Chanpheap said.

“The victim was shot in the neck and stomach.”

The robbers appear to have searched the house for valuables, but only made off with the purse of the victim’s wife, containing a phone and some cash.

“The neighbours of the victim called us and we went down quickly to arrest them, but they fled the scene,” Chanpheap said

The robbery follows the theft last week of a $30,000 jewelled ornament from a pagoda in the same distict, however Chanpheap said he believes the crimes were committed by different groups.
