Callous thief stoops to rock-bottom methods

Callous thief stoops to rock-bottom methods

It seems that thieves are up to some new tricks, as demonstrated in a case in the capital’s Tuol Kork district on Sunday.

A conniving crook decided to lay rocks along a path under the Stung Meanchey sky bridge along Street 271, deliberately tripping up a 26-year-old motorcyclist who was passing by and causing him to fall off his bike.

Just then, the lurking looter approached the man on the pretext of helping him, only to push him away and take the vehicle. The betrayed biker has informed police.
