A burglar broke his leg trying to flee the scene of a robbery in Phnom Penh’s Russey Keo district on Friday.
Police said the man and an accomplice had allegedly broken into a garment factory through the roof when they were spotted by a Chinese manager there.
The two bolted, with one breaking his leg in the leap from the roof. The ensuing fight between the men, the manager and a security guard ended with the manager stabbed, one thief at large and the hobbled robber in custody. He is now bound for court. KOH SANTEPHEAP
