Armed, masked thugs raid exchange shop

Three masked marauders raided a money exchange in Phnom Penh’s Sek Sok district on Saturday, making off with a tidy sum in the process.

The trio entered the shop and claimed they wanted to change some dollars into riel.

As the 46-year-old proprietor counted out the cash, one of the masked thugs produced a rifle, which he used to whack the victim’s aunt.

The masked miscreants proceeded to help themselves to cash and other items totalling $20,000 in value.
