POLICE FIND EXPLANATION FOR PERKY COFFEE SHOP
Police in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district have shut down a coffee shop after it was caught showing sex videos in a brazen attempt to attract customers. Police raided the coffee shop on Sunday, arresting the owner and sending its customers to “get educated”. Officers reported seizing stacks and stacks of sex videos. Neighbours said they have long complained that the coffee shop was stimulating its customers with more than just freshly brewed coffee, but authorities failed to look into the complaints for months. Now that police have stepped in, the neighbours reported being extremely happy.

MAN NABBED FOLLOWING DRAMATIC BIKE PURSUIT
Police have arrested a 20-year-old man accused of swiping a woman’s necklace during a high-speed motorbike chase in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district Saturday. The victim said she was minding her own business, driving her motorbike down a street, when she noticed two men on a motorbike following close behind her. She sped up in order to lose them, but they remained on her tail. She increased her speed until she was driving “very fast”, but the suspects matched her velocity. Then they pulled up beside her and allegedly snatched her necklace as she drove, causing her to fall from her motorbike. The victim shouted for help. Police caught one of the suspects, but the second is still missing. The arrested man allegedly admitted to the robbery.

WHO FIRED THE GUN? BODY PUZZLES COPS
Police in the capital say they have been left puzzled after discovering a dead man’s body with a gun lying nearby Sunday. Investigators say there are two possible explanations for the gruesome finding: Either the man killed himself, or he was the victim of a homicide. The man’s son told police that he believed his father, 59, killed himself because he had a terminal illness. But police aren’t so sure, hence the need for a thorough investigation.
