Thief’s failure to breathe in water ruins escape

In another water-related incident, a 30-year-old man was arrested in Por Sen Chey district on Saturday after trying to hide from the police in a lake.

The man, suspected of trying to steal a motorbike at knifepoint, was thwarted by the victim’s neighbours.

Scared, the man jumped into a nearby lake. Police arrived, waited for him to get out, made the arrest and sent him to court. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
