Suspected of stealing construction materials, a 30-year-old man was arrested yesterday morning in Phnom Penh’s Prampi Makara district.
Police said the suspect sneaked into a construction site at night, when a security guard alerted police.
The manager, along with a few construction workers, looked for the suspect, who was found hiding out among the building materials.
The suspect, however, said he had jumped the fence into the site to escape being chased by “gangsters”, who were trying to attack him. Police are investigating. Koh Santepheap
