Horseplay turns into bullying in Phnom Penh

What could have been simple horseplay ended up looking a lot more like bullying on Wednesday as a teen was arrested in the capital’s Prampi Makara district.

Police said the 17-year-old had been playing with a friend’s younger brother, 9, when they got into an argument. In the end, the youngster was pushed to the ground, then kicked and slapped around the head.

Concerned parents filed a complaint, which saw the teen arrested. His parents are now trying to negotiate a deal that doesn’t include a court hearing. DEUM AMPIL
