Neighbour puts damper on attempted robbery

A 23-year-old's plans were doused when he was arrested in a pond in Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district on Sunday after he allegedly robbed a girl’s necklace.

Police say the girl, 13, was walking home from school when the suspect threatened her with a knife and demanded her necklace.

A bystander who saw the event called his neighbour for help, and the suspect, afraid, jumped into a nearby pond.

The neighbour came to the rescue and detained the alleged thief in the pond until police arrived. KOH SANTEPHEAP
