The two suspects took off in a vehicle, and Ruth jumped out in the 3000 block of North Broadway while the second suspect wasn't caught, police said.

On Sunday, the suspect successfully robbed two stores, and he attempted to rob at another.

Two days after a 21-year-old man was stabbed to death, police arrested three men who had attacked him during a robbery bid.

Police responded to the 1900 block of Warren Avenue around 12:17 p.m. Saturday and found a woman "bleeding heavily from the face and head".


The attempted robbery did not leave anyone injured. "Once they had the money, the suspects ran from the scene", stated the news release. Police said the suspect, later identified as Graves, entered the store, reportedly threatened the cashier and fled with cash from the register.

Baker, 41, with no permanent address, should be considered "armed and risky", police spokesman Joel DeSpain said, urging anyone who sees him or the auto he allegedly stole to call 911, not Crime Stoppers.

Eventually, Ruth got out of the auto in the 3000 block of North Broadway and was arrested soon after. The deputy persecutor of Phnom Penh court, Mr. Reil Sophen, charged the couple as scammers before submitting the case before the judge and detaining the suspects. Officers secured the premises and located the suspect.
