Phnom Penh: A man was detained for impersonating a police officer in the early hours of November 27, 2019 along National Road 4 in front of Borey Sen Monorom in Chaom Chau 3, Khan Por Sen Chey, Phnom Penh.
The fake cop was identified as Touch David, 24.
The victim, Chea Sophanath, 24, was a factory worker.
Before the incident, he was riding a motorbike from National Road 4 when the man wearing a police uniform chased after him.
The suspect was asked to confirm his identity but refused to answer.
Local authorities took both men to Chom Chao 3 station for questioning. There the subject confessed that he was a fake cop and the uniform was purchased at Teuk Thla market. He did this because he was in love with the idea of being in the police.
The suspect was arrested and the case sent to the Porsenchey District Inspectorate to take action. AREY
