POLICE SEIZE THIEVES, BUT NOT STOLEN LOOT
Police in Phnom Penh’s Russey Keo district have arrested three people who are believed to have mugged a local woman. Officers said the alleged thieves snatched the woman’s necklace while she was driving her motorbike along National Road 5. Police said the woman shouted for help immediately. Police managed to arrest the three individuals and confiscate their motorbike. However, the suspects threw away the necklace before police arrested them, officers said.

NOT ONLY CAFFEINE STIMULATES AT CAFE
Anti-human trafficking police in Phnom Penh say they have arrested a 32-year-old Vietnamese woman who is accused of opening up a coffee shop that didn’t just serve steaming cups of java; it also served sex, they said. The female suspect allegedly ran the coffee house as a front for her sex shop in the Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district. Police said the apparently illegitimate business ran counter to Prime Minister Hun Sen’s expressed goal of rubbing out vice in Cambodia. Police have sent the woman and three other sex workers to Phnom Penh Municipal Court.

ACCUSED ROBBERS MAKE OFF WITH MOTO
A 16-year-old high school student from Phnom Penh’s Russey Keo district was beaten and robbed as she and her friends were riding a motorbike home from school, police reported. Witnesses said the thieves circled the little group and beat them with “a long gun”. Then the bandits made off with the 16-year-old girl’s 2009 Honda Dream motorbike. Police said the robbery happened along National Road 5. Officers had no luck finding the three thieves following what was undoubtedly an exhaustive search.
