Robbers beat drunk, take money and run

Robbers beat drunk, take money and run

Despite their victim being the easiest of pickings – drunk and passed out – two Phnom Penh thieves decided to be extra sure by clubbing the snoozing man with a rock on Monday.

Police said the 29-year-old victim had passed out along the river bank near Wat Phnom when the thieves pounced, smashing his head and taking his iPhone and some cash.

The victim woke up to a very sore head and a fair amount of blood but, predictably, zero information to help out police.
