A woman scorned (and hoodwinked) wins out

A 28-year-old farmer was arrested on Wednesday after jilting a girlfriend who’d lent him money and a motorbike only to see him marry another woman.

The ex had apparently lived with the man for two years in Stung Treng, before she lent him the money to look for a job in neighbouring Kampong Thom.

He later borrowed the motorbike to work as a motodop, only to vanish. After months of waiting, his old flame went looking and found him wedded and unwilling to give back what he had taken. Police arrested him the next day. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
