A jewellery vendor in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district found herself a few carats short after trying to help two shoppers.
The 40-year-old vendor was approached by two people trying to exchange money. When she turned around, the suspects lifted a diamond ring and a necklace.
By the time the vendor caught on and called for help, the pair had already escaped. Police are investigating, but the distraught vendor can’t recall the suspects’ faces. Deum Apil
