No good driver goes unpunished in capital

Being a good driver cost a woman her handbag in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district on Monday night. According to police, the woman broke with common practice by actually deciding to stop at a red light on her way home from work.

While waiting for the light to change, two men pulled up behind her on a moto, brandished a gun and demanded her bag. The woman complied and the two men sped off before she could get a look at their faces. The men are still at large. Deum Ampil
