Two Cambodian women killed in Thailand

A man was arrested by Thai police yesterday for allegedly killing two Cambodian women in Thailand’s Chanthaburi province, according to a police report.    
 

Chat Sros, the deputy chief of the Cambodia-Thai relations office at the Dong International Border Checkpoint in Battambang province, confirmed with Khmer Times that he received a primary report from Thai authorities about the killing.
 

“Thai police informed us that they arrested a Cambodian man over accusations he was involved in the deaths of two Cambodian women,” he said, adding that the murders happened at 8:30am yesterday.  
 

Cambodian police have yet to identify the victims or the suspect.
 

“A motive for the killing has yet to be determined,” he added.
 

According to Cambodia’s National Police website, the suspect used a knife to stab the women to death near Thai police station unit 115 in Pong Nam Ron district.
 

“After the killing, the suspect fled into the forest along the Cambodia-Thai border. Later Thai police arrested him and he was taken to the Thai police station for questioning,” it said.
