Gun persuades couple to play the quiet game

A couple's cries for help after being robbed yesterday went unanswered by everyone except by the thieves themselves.

Police say that after leaving a nightclub in the capital’s Chamkarmon district, the couple was tailed by six men on three motorbikes, who managed to push them off their own ride and take it, a mobile phone and the girl’s hand bag.

When they yelled “thief! thief!” after their assailants left, one came back and pointed a gun at the man’s head and told him to stop yelling. The victims filed a report with police. KOH SANTEPHEAP
