One man finds solace in money after being jilted

A man in Kampot’s Kampong Trach district was arrested for adopting a strange and ultimately unsuccessful courtship tactic on Tuesday.

Police said the man broke into the home of a sleeping widow he knew, stealing $50 from under her bed.

He then waited for her to awaken and tried to persuade her to marry him, pocketing the cash after being rebuffed.

The police were called and the man reportedly confessed, saying he had been in love with the woman, and only decided to keep the money because she turned him down. NOKORWAT
