WOMAN ROBBED OF EXCESSIVE BLING
A woman in Battambang province says she believes she was robbed after a thief saw her sporting expensive jewellery during a wedding party last week. The victim said she went to the party last week and noticed a man staring at her. She was wearing a lot of jewellery, police said, including rings, a necklace and flashy earrings that piqued the thief’s interest. The next day, thieves cleaned out the woman’s house, swiping everything of value and escaping. Police are still investigating the case.

SON THREATENS TO KILL FATER: POLICE
Police have arrested a 22-year-old man in Takeo province after the man allegedly threatened to kill his own father. Investigators say the son was addicted to drugs and threatened to stab his father Saturday. But the plan was thwarted when the mother arrived home and screamed for help. Police say the man was addicted to “drugs and wine”. The father reported that he had previously sent his son to the Orgkas Khnom, or My Chance, drug treatment centre in Phnom Penh, but that his son quickly returned to drug use when he returned home.

KILLERS SENTENCED TO 15 YEARS' PRISON
A Kampong Cham court sentenced two men to 15 years each in prison on Saturday after they were convicted of robbing and killing a 10-year-old girl last month. Police said the men robbed and then killed the girl before throwing her body in a river. Investigators said “rancour” was the reason for the robbery, since it was unlikely such a young girl would have had much money. The victim’s mother was not pleased with the decision and said that the killing of another human being should have resulted in a much stiffer punishment.
