Home sweet tuk-tuk no defence from burglars

Even on wheels, a man’s home is his castle, but that doesn’t always guarantee security. A tuk-tuk driver found this out the hard way when he climbed in the back of his wheels on Tuesday night and settled in for the night, only to be robbed.

Police said the driver, who had camped near a guesthouse in Pursat town, had only just dozed off when two men surrounded him with knives and demanded his money. The terrified driver handed over his savings – $125 – and the men disappeared into the night on a motorbike. KOH SANTEPHEAP
