Gold or gun? Armed trio in brazen shop robbery

Three suspects are on the lam after a bold robbery of a Phnom Penh gold seller on Friday.

Police said the victim was opening her shop in the early morning hours – before the neighbouring vendors had arrived – when the trio pulled up on a moto and threatened her with both a gun and a knife.

The vendor quickly parted with $20,000 worth of jewellery and watched the suspects drive off before she could call police. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
