( Svay Rieng): On December 17, 2018, 2 Chinese men on a motorcycle purchased $ 1 of fuel and paid with a $ 50 note.
When the attendant was preparing the $ 49 change in Riel, the Chinese grabbed his money pouch and sped off on the motorcycle.
About 1,120,000 Riel ($280) was taken in the snatch.
Crime is said to be increasing in the area, especially the way from Bavet to the border casinos, with Chinese being blamed for a lot of petty thefts, presumably to pay for gambling habits.
It is hoped that the police can catch the thieves and punish them by law.
