Good Samaritan caught out by highway rogues

Good Samaritan caught out by highway rogues

Four thieves depending on the kindness of a stranger found themselves in a bind after exploiting a Good Samaritan on Saturday.

Using a broken car as an alibi, the men flagged down a truck driver transporting clothes from Sihanoukville.

The helpful driver pulled over to lend a hand, but found himself the victim as one man held him at knifepoint while the others emptied clothes from the truck.

The driver’s shouts brought the police who were able to arrest one 25-year-old suspect. The other three escaped in the not-so-broken getaway car. KOH SANTEPHEAP
