PHUKET: Police are hunting a pair of armed robbers who stole 30,000 baht from two Myanmar nationals in Phuket on Wednesday afternoon.

Ye Su Or, 21, and Priew, 17, were walking into a SuperCheap when two men drove up on a motorbike and demanded the money at knife-point.

“The couple had a lot of cash so that they could buy items from the SuperCheap and re-sell them at their workers’ camp,” Capt Pichai Wattanawalan of the Thalang Police said.

The robbers quickly fled the scene.
