Lady of the night doles out hard-knock lesson

A university student will likely be hitting the books rather than hitting the streets after an incident with prostitutes on Friday.

Police said the young man left a party to look for paid companionship in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district, and soon found himself negotiating terms.

Determining that robbing the man would be more profitable, the woman and seven of her friends set upon the student, knocking him down and taking his wallet, phone and motorbike.

The man called for help, but there was no one around to hear, and the suspects escaped. KOH SANTEPHEAP
