Brooklyn Buddhist Monks Were Robbed At Gunpoint After Burglars Broke Into A Cambodian Temple: Know More Here

Around 2:30 p.m., Watt Samakki-Dhammikaram, located at 26 Rugby Road in Flatbush, was the scene of an armed robbery.

Four monks were inside the temple when the armed thieves broke into the back, according to the NYPD. One of the armed bandits demanded money and property from the monks, brandishing a rifle.

The three, who were probably all guys, took off running along Rugby Road towards the north. It is Sunday evening, and the suspects are still at large.

“The monks are so scared now, they are so frightened,” Kim Duong, 52, told The New York Daily News. “It’s lucky no one was hurt.”

The temple has been contacted by Fox News Digital for additional remarks.
