Masked bandit steals student’s school fees

Masked bandit steals student’s school fees

For one unlucky university student, school may be out for summer.

The 21-year-old had $500 stolen by a masked thief on Saturday.

She had returned to her home town to collect the money, which would pay her school fees for the coming term.

On her way back to Phnom Penh her bag was snatched and the cash lost. Police say they are searching for the thief, but finding the masked bandit could prove difficult, as the student was unable to get a look at his face. Koh Santepheap
