Thieves invade home of government official

Two thieves stole about $40,000 worth of jewellery and money on Wednesday night from the home of an official who works at the Council of Ministers, local authorities said.

Yan Van Yong, 44, his wife, businesswoman Thuong Ny, and their two daughters had pulled up by car at their house in Tuol Kork district’s Boeung Kak 1 commune, and one of the daughters had just opened the door, when two unknown men, each armed with a gun, rushed into the house, Boeung Kak 1 commune chief Vit Darith said.

“Actually, the suspects had followed the victims’ car on a moto all the way from Koh Pich,” Darith said. After entering the house, the suspects scuffled with Van Yong and hit him with one of their guns, injuring him on one eyebrow, before escaping with money, jewellery and several other items, Darith said.

Local authorities were investigating the case and questioning the victims in further detail to learn the suspects’ identities, he said.
