Police Blotter: 12 Oct 2010

Teenager dies after collision with truck
A 14-year-old boy died after a Lexus truck ran into the back of his motorbike in Takeo province earlier this month. Police said one of the tyres on the back of the truck “exploded”, causing the truck to lose control and collide with the back of the victim’s motorbike. The truck overturned into a nearby rice field, but its passengers only suffered minor injuries. The 14-year-old was sent to hospital, and died not long after as a result of his injuries.

Police have arrested two men accused of stealing a purse from a grocer in Phnom Penh’s Dangkor district. The two men approached the grocer under the pretense of wanting to buy “many kinds of vegetables”. But when the grocer began to invoice the pair, they reportedly snatched her purse from an unlocked drawer behind the counter and fled to a motorbike that was waiting outside, leaving the vegetables on the counter. Police arrested them roughly 10 kilometres down the road and returned the victim’s purse.
