POLICE NAB THREE ROBBERS AFTER DOGNAPPING
Police in Kandal province have nabbed three alleged dognappers. The three men were arrested after being accused of trying to capture dogs belonging to a 46-year-old man Tuesday. Four suspects snatched the two dogs, but the homeowner woke up in time and managed to apprehend one of the thieves. He then alerted police, who swooped in to arrest two more. All three have allegedly confessed to trying to pull off the canine caper. Police have sent them to court and are looking for the fourth suspect.

BOY LANDS IN HOT WATER FOLLOWING STEAMY TRYST
Police in Battambang town arrested a 16-year-old boy on Tuesday after a woman accused him of kidnapping her 17-year-old daughter. It is alleged that the boy phoned the 17-year-old to invite her out for a leisurely walk on the town in late June. That’s when he asked her to live with him in an out-of-wedlock arrangement. She apparently agreed, and the couple rented a room and slept together that night. Upon his subsequent arrest, police sent the boy to the provincial police station for questioning.
