Attempted theft victim keeps bike, loses blood

A 28-year-old seafood seller was shot in the shoulder and the waist by four men who decided to try and steal his motorbike in Phnom Penh’s Prampi Makara district on Sunday.

The man was on his way home from a party when four guys on two bikes screamed at him to stop. He sped up instead, and one of his pursuers pulled out a gun and fired twice.

The thieves grabbed his damaged bike, but a plucky security guard yelled for help. The suspects fled and the victim was hospitalised.
