Grifters con woman out of earrings and iPhone

A capital garment worker woke up with a headache and no earrings after she was robbed on Tuesday. Leaving work in Por Sen Chey district, the victim was approached by an older woman who claimed her handbag was missing.

Another woman came up, said she found the bag, and told the victim to hop on a moto and retrieve it. Once on the bike, however, she was whacked on the back of the head and fell unconscious.

When she came to, her platinum jewellery and iPhone were gone, so she headed on to police headquarters hoping they could track down the gang of grifters who preyed on her good graces.
