Lunch money robber finally brought to heel

Lunch money robber finally brought to heel

If bullies are cowards, then one 22-year-old capital man is a contender for Cambodia’s wimp of the year, after he was caught shaking down scared children for cash on their way to school on Sunday.

The man reportedly hung around a primary school in Tuol Kork district, forcing kids to hand over 1,000 or 2,000 riel ($0.25 or $0.50) each day.

If they refused, he allegedly went into their pockets and took everything they had. When the school director caught wind of the caper, he called in cops, who on Sunday captured the man in the act. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
