Prominent humourist robbed at gunpoint

FAMOUS Cambodian comedian Neay Koy was robbed yesterday of more than US$40,000 worth of jewellery by a masked man wielding a gun. Neay Koy, also known as Chuong Chi, said he was robbed after a group of four men wearing masks and helmets approached him in a car garage in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district at around 12:30pm. “The robber was about to shoot me but I outright told him that I’d give him all my jewellery and begged him not to kill me,” he said. Neay Koy said the stolen jewellery – a gold necklace, watch, bracelet and two diamond rings – were valued at more than US$40,000. Huot Chanyaran, Tuol Kork district police chief, said police were searching for the four men.
