A botched robbery led to a fiery flight for three teens arrested in Kandal’s Kien Svay district on Monday. Police said the three had all piled onto a moto carrying some bags, ostensibly to get a ride.
When they reached a secluded place, however, they produced a veritable armoury of weapons and attempted to attack the driver. His cries for help drew a crowd, and the boys fled into a nearby forest.
Not content to let them go, the posse set fire to the forest, prompting the trio to flee into their pursuers and issue coughing confessions. NOKORWAT
