Two samurai schooled for botched hit-and-run

Two Daun Penh schoolboys were arrested on Monday after botching a hit-and-run robbery with a samurai sword.

Riding a moto, the duo followed their intended victim, an 18-year-old boy, as he drove home from Diamond Island.

They drew near, knocking the victim to the ground, one drawing the sword on him while the other attempted to pinch his moto.

Fortunately, police were on hand to intervene, apprehending the twosome and carting them off to Daun Penh district police station where documents are being prepared to send them to court.
