Police on the lookout for birthday bandits

The cake wasn’t the only surprise at a birthday celebration in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district on Monday.

Police said a man had taken his girlfriend to a quiet spot under a bridge to surprise her with cake for her birthday.

Just as they were enjoying the confection, however, two moto-helmeted men approached brandishing a gun.

The masked men made off with the boyfriend’s moto. And though the couple filed a complaint, it will be tough to track the men without having seen their faces. DEUM AMPIL
