Woman shot over moto

Four men were arrested yesterday morning after a woman was shot in the stomach with an AK-47 during a motorbike robbery in Phnom Penh, police said.

Soy Chandy, commander of the Prampi Makara district military police, said the men were apprehended about 5:30am after shooting and seriously injuring a 41-year-old and stealing her motorbike in Prampi Makara district’s Veal Vong commune.

“They have used an AK-47 rifle to shoot at a woman to rob her of her motorbike. They have shot her in the stomach,” he said. “Military police arrested them about 20 minutes after the robbery.”

Hun Hul, 42, is the alleged owner of the AK-47 used in the robbery and the man accused of shooting the victim; Kruy Kim, 28, is accused of being the group’s driver; and Huth Phearom, 38, and Leng Soly, 33, are accused of being accomplices.

All four men will be taken to court today and charged.

The woman remained in serious condition in hospital yesterday.
