Two injured after theft

A 51-year-old man was seriously injured after he was shot while attempting to intervene in the armed robbery of a 50-year-old gold vendor at a market in Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district on Saturday evening. Phnom Penh Municipal Police Chief Touch Naruth said yesterday that Ke Phal was shot in his right thigh as he tried to thwart the robbery, while gold vendor Huon Thuok suffered a head injury. The robbers reportedly fled after stealing about US$50,000 worth of gold and cash. Touch Naruth said that police were still investigating the case.
