Guns, swords and gang a recipe for trouble for chef

Guns, swords and gang a recipe for trouble for chef

One victim more used to dealing with spatulas and pots was confronted with swords and pistols when a crew of six robbed him on Tuesday in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district.

The 21-year-old chef was on his way home from work when three motorbikes tailed him.

Swinging blades and a gun, the thugs downed his ride then punched him before taking his mobile and riding away on his moped.

Hoping cops could whip up a search he headed towards the nearest police station to file a complaint.
