A couple of brave villagers foiled a robbery attempt on a 70-year-old farmer in Prey Veng’s Preah Sdech district on Saturday.
Police say four men, aged between 26 and 50, cornered the old man while he was waiting to cross a river on a ferry with his motorbike, shouting at him to hand over his money.
Local villagers came to his aid. The police then arrested two of the robbers. The men confessed, saying they needed money after visiting the provinces.
Police are on the lookout for the two remaining suspects. Koh Santepheap
