Teen home safe after kidnapping goes bust

Teen home safe after kidnapping goes bust

Channelling Liam Neeson, Battambang provincial police must have had a particular set of skills that helped them take down a pair of kidnappers in Bavel commune who were trying to get $500 ransom.

Reporting to authorities on Friday, a woman said her 17-year-old son had been missing for three days before she got a call demanding she transfer money for his release.

Staking out the local Wing shop, cops nabbed two men who came to get the cash and took them in for questioning where they confessed.

Mother and boy were reunited and the suspects were sent to a holding cell.
