A 36-year-old man was robbed and badly injured in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district early on Saturday.
Police said the car mechanic was walking his motorcycle home after it failed to start when six men blocked his path and demanded $2.50.
The man had only half that sum, which didn’t please the thugs who assaulted him with a belt, badly injuring his head.
They took his belongings and wheeled away his bike. Police sent the victim to a hospital and are searching for the suspects.
