Theft after sex
Three men accused of hiring the services of four different prostitutes and robbing them after sex will be sent to the Battambang Provincial Court today to be charged after police arrested them on Tuesday.

Chet Vanny, deputy provincial police chief, said the three suspects – Sun Chamnab, 27, Sok Ratana, 23, and Eng Ty, 27 – would hire a prostitute and have sex with her at a guesthouse.
