Junkie Scissorhands’ reign of terror ended

A reputed junkie in Battambang allegedly went on a stabbing spree on Sunday. Police said the man, a barber, was known locally for his tendency to become aggressive when he didn’t have any drugs.

He was apparently in such a state when an argument with a woman ended in him stabbing the woman twice with a pair of scissors. The woman’s parents tried to calm the man down, but he stabbed them too. Outraged neighbours finally called the cops and the man was arrested. DEUM AMPIL
