This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.
On the Kampot Noticeboard today, an expat woman reports that she was followed home and robbed on arriving in her house. The attack occurred around 7-8pm, and the woman was awake and present when the thieves entered her home.
Also, she says that she has dogs.
I have dogs and I was at home... But thank you for your advice
Recently there have been an increase in muggings and robberies in Kampot. Expats and locals are victims. Expat and local women on their own are particularly targeted by the thieves.
Stay aware and stay safe. Report to the police if you have been a victim of a robbery or attempted robbery. Each report may assist the police in their investigations.
Kampot was always a bit wild. The hills around there were Khmer Rouge strongholds till at least the mid 90s. Lots of demobilized/ defected soldiers live in the area. Not that they are really a problem, their kids might be though.
