The driver of an "indian" or passapp tuktuk and his wife were robbed at knifepoint by two thieves on 19 November at 1:16 pm. The suspect was a regular client of the victims. On that day, the victim and his wife took the suspect and another man from Veng Sreng road to Chneas Chneas boulevard and continued to Prek Tameak bridge. Then, the suspect told the victim to go further. Then he pulled out a knife on the woman and robbed her bag. The man hit the woman in the face, so the man handed over his tuktuk, their telephones, and about 50,000 riel.
