Tied up with string: Bomb gifter nabbed but not named

A suspect has been arrested in the case of a man who left a grenade in a gift box and delivered it to a cafe in Phnom Pen’s Tuol Kork district on Saturday.

Po Davy with the Phnom Penh Municipal Military Police declined yesterday to provide the man’s name as it involves an ongoing investigation, but said the suspect’s identity would be revealed today.

Davy said the empty grenade was packaged and then given to a security guard in front of Prime Cafe at 11am on July 26 in Boeung Kak II commune.

Soeun Bunthoeun, the 29-year-old security guard who received the package, said he was standing in front of the cafe when an unidentified man told him to pass the package to the shop’s owner. Suspecting something, Bunthoeun opened the box and discovered the grenade.

Khan Khunthith, a Boeung Kak II police officer, said on Sunday that police suspected a recently fired supervisor was the culprit.
