Urchins lull monk into false sense of security

Two young boys sleeping at a capital pagoda put on their best smiles and offered to earn their keep by giving a tired nonagenarian monk a nice massage on Tuesday.

The 90-year-old cleric was soon asleep and that’s when the young duo robbed the old man blind.

The pair allegedly tossed the room and found $2,000, with which they quickly bolted.

Luckily, the police located them the very next day. Not so luckily, they explained, the lion’s share of the loot had been given to a modern-day Fagin who had placed them in the Sen Sok district pagoda in the first place.

Police are now seeking the mastermind.
