Armed bank robbery yields $100,000


Recommended Posts

Five masked men armed with guns and body armour brazenly robbed an RHB Indochina bank branch in broad daylight in the capital yesterday morning, making off with $100,000. Interior Ministry spokesman General Khieu Sopheak said late last night that one person has been brought in for questioning thus far, but would not reveal any further details. “This is the first time an armed bank robbery has occurred in a long time,” Gen Sopheak added.

Phnom Penh police yesterday said that the robbery occurred at about 11.40am at RHB Indochina’s Mao Tse Toung Boulevard branch in Chamkar Mon district. “We are working on the case and our officers are in the process of questioning bank employees,” said penal bureau chief Eng Sorphea. Video footage obtained from the bank and circulating online shows five masked men wearing motorbike helmets pointing guns at a bank security guard and stashing cash into a bag while behind a teller’s counter.
