Intruder learns too late he wasn’t home alone

A thief quickly became a prisoner on Sunday after being locked inside the house he was allegedly trying to rob. According to police, the 27-year-old was one of four men who raided a property in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district.

While scouring the house for valuables, the group was surprised by the owner, who managed to lock the door and prevent one suspect from escaping. Upon the arrival of police, the trapped man confessed, telling officers he was jobless after a recent stint in prison. KOH SANTEPHEAP
