The source said that at around 10 pm, there were noises of the victims shouting several times, but since the night was too quiet and the area was far from the village, no one came out to help the suspect. So the thieves managed to kill the victim, steal the motorcycle successfully and escape safely.

Relatives told the sad story that the victim and his wife from his hometown had come to Phnom Penh to work, he as a carpenter and glassmaker, while his wife, who is 7 months pregnant, is a factory worker.

Suspected killers of taxi driver arrested
Police in Phnom Penh on Monday arrested three people suspected of killing and robbing a motorbike taxi driver last week.

The crime occurred after midnight on October 15 in Dangkor district’s Sak Sampov commune.

Colonel Cheav Vibol, chief of the Interior Ministry’s penal police office, identified the suspects as construction workers Oeung Pheap, Nom Pov and Pok Sokny, owner of a motorbike shop. He identified the victim as Mek Phin, who lived in Por Senchey district.

He noted that the suspects were arrested in different locations in the capital.

They are accused of killing the victim and stealing his motorbike and mobile phone.

Col Vibol said the three are now detained at the municipal police headquarters for questioning.

Captain Ly Sarith, a police officer with the municipal general crimes department, yesterday said Mr Pheap and Mr Pov hired the victim at about 12.30am to take them to a friend’s home in the commune.

Col Sarith said the victim was allegedly taken to a less crowded place in Kveth village and both men started beating him.

“After killing the victim, they stole his Honda C125 motorbike and the OPPO phone,” he said. “They took the stolen bike and sold it to Mr Sokny, owner of the motorbike shop in Tuol Kork district.”

Cap Sarith noted that the body of the victim was discovered by villagers at about 6am.

He said that on Monday joint-forces arrested Mr Sokny at his shop after the victim’s stolen motorbike was located.
