BULLET-PROOF MAN FOILS ROBBERY

A group of armed men are on the run after a foiled robbery attempt in Svay Pak village, Prongel commune, Phnom Kravanh district, Pursat province Thursday. Sorn Him, 23, chased the group of men after they tried to steal buffalo from outside his house and could not believe his luck when all the bullets fired by the men missed him. One of the bullets went under Sorn Him's armpit and damaged his shirt but did not hurt him. The group of would-be-robbers fled, leaving the buffalo behind.
