Woman’s tank empty, thieves’ gun loaded

Out of gas equalled out of luck for a 29-year-old woman in the capital’s Daun Penh district on Monday night.

Police said the woman had been riding her moto home when it puttered to a stop and forced her to get off and push.

While the duo walked away scot-free, the woman was able to offer a description to police.
