So-called ‘friend’ robs passed-out pal in capital

A woman woke up in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district on Tuesday night groggy, disoriented and about $5,000 poorer.

Police said the woman had been visited by a 21-year-old friend who slipped a mickey into her glass of water then waited for her to pass out.

With the victim out cold, our suspect then methodically made her way through the home looking for loot before stumbling on the five-grand stash, along with several phones.

The haul wasn’t long for the keeping, as police found and arrested her a day later based on the victim’s description.
