Woman gets short end of stick; thugs get moto

A 28-year-old woman was robbed by a pair of thugs who gave chase with a motorbike and whacked her with a wooden club in Tbong Khmum province on Sunday.

Police say that the woman, a bank employee, was driving by moto from her home when she was struck from behind by her assailants, causing her to fall.

The suspects then took her necklace, ring and phone but left the bike behind as a crowd of witnesses was forming. The woman has been sent to a hospital while police seek the suspects.
