Karaoke parlour attack

Police are looking for a man who attacked a karaoke-parlour hostess in Kampong Cham commune’s Kampong Cham town on Sunday.

The man attacked 21-year-old Moeun Sreypov in a rented room, knocking her head against the wall and kicking her, according to Hang Vanchon, the town’s deputy police chief.

The pair had been spending time together since meeting a week ago at the Monorom karaoke parlour, but the motive behind the attack was unclear, he said.

Hang Vachon said jealousy was a possible reason, given that the woman had many customers. He said he doubted it was a case of robbery, as the man had taken only her mobile phone, a cheap platinum ring and a bracelet.
