Chicken vendor savagely beaten

A roast chicken vendor was attacked by competing vendors at the capital’s Old Stadium in Daun Penh district on Friday, police said yesterday.

San Sophal, Srah Chak commune police officer, said victim Mao Chian, 32, had a long-lasting rivalry with a married couple who manned a neighbouring stall.

“The victim and the suspects sold roast chickens near each other,” he said.

“They had a dispute over customers. So the suspects jointly beat her.”

The couple had attacked her with a hook knife, resulting in critical head and body injuries, he added.

Mao Chian was sent to Calmette Hospital for treatment.

The suspects, who lived in the same village as the victim – Deum Khvith village in Russey Keo district – had escaped but were being searched for by police, he said.
