A $3 heist leaves bully staring at jail time

A 22-year-old man will be rethinking his life from a prison cell after Kampot town police arrested him from attempting to rob $3 from two 13-year-old schoolboys as they rode their bikes home on Wednesday.

Authorities say the suspect approached the boys in a quiet street and demanded their money, before proceeding to beat them up and taking it by force.

Luckily, police in the area witnessed the crime and arrested the suspect, who has been sent to court while the boys are having their battle scars treated at a hospital.
