Motodop takes throat stabbing on the chin

Motodop takes throat stabbing on the chin

A plucky motodop fended off a robber on the road to Poipet town on Tuesday, paying no mind to the two stab wounds he had just received to the throat.

Police said the suspect had hired the driver to take him to the border town, but pulled out a knife en route and jabbed him twice in the neck.

The bike fell to the ground and the two men scuffled over it. Eventually, realising the man he had hoped to victimise was actually invincible, the thief fled and was later arrested. KOH SANTEPHEAP
