The Year of Living Dangerously … in Daun Penh

An American freelance journalist in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district on Tuesday found himself filing a different kind of report – a police report.

Police said the man was sitting on a bench when two men approached him with an axe and cleaver and robbed his phone and money.

The men fled and the victim chased them on a bike. Nearby police managed to arrest one; true to form, local residents roughed up the ruffian before he was arrested. DEUM AMPIL
