An out-of-work maid sought a more lucrative form of compensation on Monday when she returned to the home she used to clean and attempted to steal a ring off the finger of her former employer.
The 36-year-old entered the premises in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district uninvited, and when she found her boss alone, hit her in an attempt to grab the jewellery.
Neighbours overheard a screaming scuffle and alerted police. The woman claimed she had no money since leaving the job – a story she will now tell in court. KOH SANTEPHEAP
