A man was left unconscious in a pool of his own blood by one of his friends on Sunday night. Police said the pair was happily boozing together in Kampong Chhnang town before an argument broke out between them.
Things got out of hand quickly, and one of the men grabbed a piece of bamboo and attacked his friend, striking him several times on the head.
Residents woke up to find the man bloodied and out cold. The victim, 24, was hospitalised, while the suspect, 28, fled the scene only to be arrested later that night. KOH SANTEPHEAP
