There are many reasons not to entrust a one-year-old with a gold necklace, and a Phnom Penh woman learned at least one of them after an ill-fated trip to Olympic Market.
The woman, 22, was carrying her son through the market on Tuesday when a thief, 34, cut the chain and stole the necklace from the infant.
The suspect almost got away, but a vendor called out and alerted the mother and the security guards. The suspect confessed and was sent to court. Deum Ampil
