Woman falls under spell of magic-wielding men

A 33-year-old woman busted for trying to pay for gas with fake dollars told police in Oddar Meanchey on Wednesday that she was acting under the influence of nefarious men.

The woman said that she had been approached by men who touched her with a mysterious substance that caused her to fall under their spell.

They then tricked her into selling her jewellery for the fake bank notes, which she, in turn, ended using to pay for the gas. Both the gas station owner, who agreed the woman had “turned crazy”, and police bought the tale, and the men she described are now being hunted.
