Criminal couple dupes Phnom Penh motodop

A Phnom Penh motodop lost his livelihood in Prampi Makara district when a Bonnie-and-Clyde-esque duo made off with his moto on Tuesday.

According to police, the couple had asked for a ride, but told the driver to pull over in a secluded spot and held a knife to his back.

He forked over the ride, and they escaped. The man told police that the moto was his only way to support his family, but that he couldn’t identify the thieves because they were masked. Deum Ampil
