More than a knife pulled out during theft

A vegetable seller taking a leak may sound nothing unusual.

But for one veg trader in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district, hopping off his motorbike to relieve himself at the roadside gave a thief the opportunity to hold him at knife point and demand money.

The mugger got away with $50, but villagers came to the victim’s aid and helped police chase and arrest the suspect.

The money was found on the thief who said he committed the crime because he was jobless and had run out of cash.
