Tuktuk Attack in BKK District, Phnom Penh
Image
Phnom Penh, Cambodia News: At 9 pm on the night of January 30, 2020, along Mao Zedong Road in Phnom Penh, close to the Chinese Embassy in Boeng Keng Kang district, two men attacked a tuktuk carrying a Khmer man and his family, together with two of their guests from the Philippines.
Image
According to the tuktuk driver, he drove to the spot where the two guests waited for him and then they got into the tuk-tuk to take them around the Camko City Roundabout, traveling together with his family. His wife was seated on the left hand side, while the little boy was sitting in the front, as they were traveling along Mao Zedong Boulevard, when two suspects on a motorbike drove alongside the tuktuk on the right hand side. They attempted to grab a backpack from one of the Filipino passengers, but the victim resisted and hung on to the bag.
Image
The suspects then increased the escape speed of the motorbike, but the tuk-tuk driver also increased the speed until the motorcycle and tuktuk collided. The tuktuk overturned, slightly injuring the two foreign women and the wife of the tuktuk driver. The man and his son were unharmed.

Image
Shortly after the incident, the two suspects on the Suzuki motorbike, plate 1HZ5210, were detained by the Boeung Keng Kheng Police Inspectorate in cooperation with officials from the Ministry of Interior's mild criminal bureau who were on patrol in the area. The suspects will be charged with assault and aggravated robbery.

One of the Filipina's is in the Royal Phnom Penh Hospital with a collapsed lung (she was thrown from tuktuk which then fell on her) and she is also bleeding from her kidneys.

Or she has travel insurance.

MTT from monivong to the Chinese embassy has always been a hotspot for snatch and grabbers. Hopefully they get a few years and the victims some compensation.

Lets hope all is turning out good for the injured one but if I read correct, they got nothing but got chased by a "HeroTukTuk" ? Maybe not the best Idea in that case ...
