Threatening a child may have gotten a Kampong Cham robber what he wanted on Tuesday, but in the end got him neither freedom nor respect.
The 19-year-old and an associate stopped a woman on the road and vowed to kidnap her daughter if she failed to hand over her necklace, phone and money.
The mother acquiesced, but not before memorising the thieves’ faces. A police complaint and brief manhunt landed one in court just a day later, though the other remains at large. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
