Fearless Siem Reap teen takes on robbers

A brave teenager was left needing hospital attention after scuffling with a pair of armed burglars who he found in his parents house in Siem Reap town on Saturday.

After arriving at the house, the 15-year-old reportedly took the men on, but was then knocked unconscious.

The pair reportedly escaped with nothing but the youngster’s phone.

The boy was sent to the hospital and police are searching for the suspects.
