Brazen moto theft takes place near police station

A nearby police station didn’t deter a quartet of armed robbers from stealing two motos in Phnom Penh’s Prampi Makara district on Monday.

Police said two women were on their way to a wedding when four men, also on two motos, blocked them and told them at gunpoint to abandon their bikes.

The women complied, and the men sped off. Despite the robbery taking place within 500 metres of a police station, locals in the area complained of an upswing in crime. KOH SANTEPHEAP
