Terrifying chase ends in vicious sword attack

Two Phnom Penh women had the journey home from hell yesterday when they were attacked after refusing to willingly give up their motorbike to a gang of armed thieves.

Four men on two motorbikes followed the pair as they travelled back to their home in Prampi Makara district, according to police.

The suspects pulled out a gun, ordering the women to give up the bike. When one refused, the gang attacked her with a samurai sword, police said.

The suspects managed to escape, while one of the victims is still in hospital. KOH SANTEPHEAP
