‘Hey, neighbour! Let me help you with that cash’

Nothing says “welcome to the neighbourhood” quite like a mugging. A 31-year-old man was en route to a market in Banteay Meanchey’s Poipet town to shop for his housewarming party when his moto broke down.

Two men spotted the man, and rather than assist the new resident, they threatened him with a knife and swiped two million riel ($500) and a cell phone off him. The man was unable to describe the suspects to police as they were wearing helmets. DEUM AMPIL
