Unarmed? I’ll take you all on, man tells thugs

Unarmed? I’ll take you all on, man tells thugs

The predators became the prey on Sunday night in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district when the victim of a robbery realised his attackers weren’t armed.

According to police, the victim, 23, was surrounded by five men at a park who demanded he hand over the phone.

The tables turned, however, when, after handing over his cell, the man saw the group had no weapons.

He gave chase and caught one of the suspects who reportedly confessed to police and identified his accomplices. Two men, 18 and 22, were promptly sent to court. KOH SANTEHPEAP
