Phnom Penh and Takeo provincial police detained a suspect accused of robbing a Chinese national of nearly $100,000 on Friday in Takeo province’s Donkeo town.
Phnom Penh police chief Sar Thet said the suspect is Ung Sokun, 44, a driver for China Xin Cheng Concrete Cambodia Co in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district.
The suspect assaulted and robbed Lin Long, 56, on January 9. Lin worked as chief accountant for the same company. “After robbing Lin of nearly $100,000, the suspect fled for many days. However, following collaboration with Takeo provincial police, we detained the suspect on Friday,” Thet said.
He said the suspect was sent to Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Saturday.
Municipal court spokesman Ly Sophana told The Post the suspect was charged with “robbing with aggravating circumstances”.
