Motodop paid with axe to back of the head

A 32-year-old motodop was axed during a robbery in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district on Tuesday, police said. The suspect allegedly took a nighttime ride to a pagoda for 1,500 riel.

He asked the motodop to drive slowly and, when the bike came to a secluded spot, hacked the motodop twice in the neck and head with an axe before pushing him off the bike, police said.

The victim was taken to the hospital after a local villager spotted him. NOKORWAT
