Elderly woman robbed, ruthless thief arrested

A Kandal septuagenarian was the victim of a brutish attack on Saturday over a bit of cash and a pair of earrings.

Police said the 73-year-old was behind her Kien Svay district home when the suspect clubbed her on the head with a rock, making off with the jewellery and about $50.

Police quickly put out an APB and managed to nab the cad before the day was through. The woman got back most of the stolen loot, while the criminal got a date with a judge. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
