Phnom Penh, Cambodia News: A woman who took a taxi from Sihanoukville Airport to Phnom Penh has accused the taxi driver of attempting to rape her. She said that he piled all her luggage on the back seat and made her sit in the front passenger seat. A couple of times, the man started to touch her hands, then, when the taxi was arriving in Phnom Penh, the driver pulled over in a quiet spot and started to sexually assault her. The woman was going to meet her husband and she called him on the phone to tell him what happened.

The man was arrested by police at 4am on December 11, 2017 at Camko City Roundabout, Street 595, Russey Keo district in Phnom Penh. In his defense he said that he was only touching the woman's hand and he didn't assault her. However, the accused agreed to pay the woman's husband US$300 as compensation.

I love this bit. It would go down nicely in the Western media.
