Two RCAF officers threaten man

Two Royal soldiers, a Chinese man and a translator were arrested Friday in Sihanoukville for allegedly breaking into a house and threatening a man at gunpoint, according to provincial police.

Kol Phally, deputy provincial police chief, said police arrested the four alleged perpetrators on Friday night after they received a complaint from 28-year-old Vong Chanthy, an official at the Ministry of National Assembly-Senate Relations and Inspection.

“We arrested them at his house while they were threatening the owner of the house . . . There were three crimes, including breaking into the house, using illegal weapons and using violence to [get him to] sign an agreement that he owed money,” he said, declining to comment on details of the alleged agreement.

According to Phally, the suspects include RCAF First Lieutenant Yem Yothea, 28, and Warrant Officer Kong Piseth, 23. The other two suspects are translator Taing Vor, 35, and Ding Zhigang, 56. The police confiscated two guns and a military vehicle. The provincial police’s Facebook account also indicates that the suspects allegedly attempted to rob the victim.

Phally said they had been sent to court, but did not know if they had been charged.
