A couple found themselves the victims of a stickup on Tuesday in Phnom Penh’s Chroy Changvar district, losing a new Honda moto in the process.
As they headed for home, four men on two motos pulled alongside, threatening them and demanding they abandon their Honda.
They refused; prompting one of the robbers to produce a gun and shoot the male driver.
The noise alerted people nearby, causing the moto-mounted miscreants to flee. The victim is recovering in hospital.
