Robber foolishly sticks around to be arrested

Five machete-wielding men on motorbikes stole a 21-year-old man’s ride in Phnom Penh’s Chbar Ampov district on Saturday night.

The men chased down and cornered their victim, demanding he give up his bike or else. But the following day the man called the cops when he spotted one of the suspects, a 20-year-old construction worker.

Police arrested the man, who reportedly confessed to the crime but said he had no idea where his alleged accomplices were, conveniently enough. KOH SANTEPHEAP
