Ambushed phone fixer couldn’t call for help

Surrounded by phones but with no time to call police, a local phone repairman had little chance when surrounded by four thieves on Wednesday.

Police said the 27-year-old was working late at his Por Sen Chey district kiosk when the quartet, their identities concealed by helmets, approached and brandished a gun.

Alone and with few options, he wisely gave up his moto, though no word on any swiped phones. He filed a complaint to police, but with no description of their faces, arrests face long odds. KOH SANTEPHEAP
