Off-duty guard shot for not listening to threats

A 34-year-old security guard proved he doesn’t flinch at criminals on or off the job. The man was driving home after a late shift early on Saturday morning when two gun-toting robbers caught up with him in Phnom Penh’s Por Senchey district.

The crooks threatened to shoot, but the guard sped up. The moto chase ended with two shots fired into the victim’s back and the thieves heisting the bike. Cops hospitalised the guard and recommended against nighttime driving. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
