ALLEGED ROBBERS SHOOT ACCOMPLICE
A man is dead after a group of thieves allegedly attempted to rob a family in Kampong Speu province, but ended up shooting an accomplice instead. Police said the group of five suspects tried to rob the family Wednesday. But one of the would-be thieves was shot dead when his friend mistook him for the house’s owner. When the suspects realised what they had done, they grabbed their friend and ran away. Police said they found three bullets on the ground at the scene. They also said that they knew the identity of all the suspects and planned to arrest them. KAMPUCHEA THMEY

DEAL FAILS: MAN WILL FACE COURT INSTEAD

Police say the suspect, a 24-year-old man, drove his motorbike at a high velocity and slammed into a 20-year-old student who was riding her bicycle. The man tried to pay 2 million riels (US$477) in compensation to the family, but they demanded quadruple the amount. Instead, the family asked police to arrest the man.
