Roofbound burglar finds he has nowhere to run

A father and son in Battambang town discovered a filcher on the roof on Wednesday. The two men were at home when they heard a racket from above.

Their interest piqued, the pair went up to the roof to find a man seemingly up to no good. With the help of neighbours, they detained the suspect and turned him over to the authorities.

According to police, the man admitted to attempting to break into the house, wrongly thinking that the inhabitants weren’t at home. Thanks to that blunder, the suspect is now headed to court. KOH SANTEHPEAP
