Sen Sok man confesses to killing: police

One of 10 men arrested in the capital’s Sen Sok district on Wednesday morning has allegedly confessed to murdering a man for his motorbike on December 9, police said yesterday.

Deputy district police chief Sok Chhorn said yesterday that a 19-year-old man who tried to shoot at police in Thmey commune had admitted to the killing and would be detained with five of the other nine men.

“We questioned all of those men about robberies and drug use,” he said. “Six will be sent to court.”

The remaining four arrested were not involved in any crime allegedly committed by the group and were released yesterday, Chhorn added.

Police said on Wednesday that they had been searching Thmey commune at about 3am that morning when they came across the 19-year-old.

The man tried to shoot them, but his gun did not go off and he was soon arrested.

Information he provided led police to a nearby residence where the other nine men were located.
