Pistol-whipping perps on the run after theft

Police are on the lookout for a group of four men after a pistol-whipping and a moto theft on Sunday night in the capital’s Dangkor district.

The victim, 20, was riding home when a group of four men on two motos rode alongside and forced him to tumble to the ground.

Producing a gun, they ordered him to stay put.

He was subsequently struck in the face with the gun and lost the moto all the same.

The men gone, villagers emerged to help the victim, who filed a complaint with police.
