Jewellery, they say, is the best way to a woman’s heart. But it’s also a fool-proof way to get a knife pointed at your throat, as a 17-year-old boy in Svay Rieng town learned on Saturday.

The young victim was walking home when a female suspect lured him to a quiet place, police said. The woman then allegedly threatened to take the teen’s necklace with a knife.
