There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place.

Ex-con snatches locket from a baby; baby fights back

How low can you go, stealing from a baby ?

Ex-con steals locket, may again see lockup
Fri, 29 September 2017
Despite his young age, a capital 2-year-old succeeded in raising the alarm when a thief attempted to make off with his necklace in Tonle Bassac commune yesterday.

Hearing her son crying, the boy’s mother came out to the front of the house where he was playing and noticed the jewellery was missing, so she too cried out for help.

Bystanders assembled and caught the man, an ex-convict, who admitting to lifting the lad’s locket. Police soon showed up and hauled him to the station to face legal action.

Any attempt to steal my 3 year old godsons lollipop results in a swift kick or punch to the groin or face, and if he has access to anything sharp he will use that too with a rousing battle cry of "no no no for me not you". This thief got off lightly :-)

Another one for the little guys.

Candy’s easy, but taking a purse from a baby?
5 October 2017
The youngest family member proved the most observant when two thieves tried taking a purse from inside a capital family’s Por Sen Chey district home.

Walking down the road on Tuesday and noticing an open gate, the suspects slipped inside and pinched a purse sitting on the sofa. Everyone eating in the next room was unaware but, luckily, the grandchild on the first floor noticed and shouted for help.

Neighbours gathered to apprehend the pair of pilferers until police arrived to haul them away.
