Cash rustlers wait for buffalo sale, pounce

Her husband and three children away for a party and newly flush from selling her family’s buffaloes, a Kandal woman was a sitting duck for a pair of gun-toting robbers on Sunday.

Police said the 39-year-old was home alone when two men wearing masks emerged and demanded all the cash in the home.

After tossing the house turned up nothing, the suspects checked her person and found 2 million riel (about $500) on her. Luckily, that only represented a quarter of her profits, as the other three buyers had not yet paid.

Police believe the men had been aware of the sales and were staking out her home. KOH SANTEPHEAP
