A couple were beaten and robbed at gunpoint on Saturday by three men who made off with more than US$3,000 worth of their jewellery in Battambang province’s Moung Russei district.

Provincial police chief Cheth Vanny said police had arrested two of the suspects and sent them to court yesterday for charges.

He identified the two men as Phorn Map and Heang Ratana, both 28, and added that they were found in possession of an AK-47 rifle, as well as 25 rounds of ammunition.

He said police had launched a search for the third suspect, who remains at large.
