Sword-wielding thug not particularly sharp

One of two suspects in the armed robbery of a 17-year-old student in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district was arrested on Tuesday.

Police say the student was walking to visit his friend when the suspects appeared, flashed a samurai sword and robbed him of $90, a necklace and his mobile phone.

Released uninjured, he filed a complaint with the police, who found one of the alleged perpetrators the same night. Police are looking for his accomplice. NOKORWAT
