What were supposed to be peaceful grounds became the site of a failed robbery when a capital 18-year-old tried robbing a monk while he was sleeping.
Creeping into the Niroth commune novice quarters on Monday, the teen found money and valuables, but woke some of the fellow brothers who were able to apprehend him.
Police pulled up later to take the sacrilegious scamp to the station for charges.
