Placing a name with a face … and a machete

A pair of thugs was arrested on Monday over an armed robbery in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district the night before.

The victim recounted to police how the robbers, aged 23 and 38, had waved machetes at him, threatening to kill him if he didn’t hand over his wallet.

After following orders, the victim escaped unharmed. His description of the attackers resulted in a quick arrest. KOH SANTEPHEAP
