Mango sellers robbed while resting from trip

An overnight wait for a ferry spelled financial disaster for a pair of fruit wholesalers on Wednesday.

Police said the husband and wife from Kandal had decided to camp out in Kandal’s Kien Svay district after returning from Vietnam, where they unloaded their stock of mangoes.

With her husband some 30 metres away and asleep in a hammock, the woman – who had stayed in the family truck – was approached by a suspicious man.

Grabbing the bag with their $5,000 in proceeds from the journey, she rushed toward her husband, only to be overtaken and robbed. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
