Cool-headed victim leads cops to thieves

Two men who stole a motorbike at gunpoint last week are behind bars after capital police cracked the case on Wednesday.

Police said they were working off details given by the victim of the Chamkarmon district robbery, who had kept his wits about him while surrendering the bike.

Finally figuring out the men were hiding in a Daun Penh rental home, the cops raided it to find both men, the moto and the pistol used in the robbery.

Both confessed and have been sent to court.
