Police in Kandal province’s Sa’ang district are searching for a suspect who tried to behead a Cambodian-Australian man with a scythe on Sunday night.
Sa’ang district police chief Lim Sophal said 64-year-old Prak Sitha was hacked in the neck about 10:30pm near his home.
“He struggled with the suspect to keep him from cutting his throat, so his hands were also injured. At the time, he was calling for help from his wife and children, so the suspect ran away,” the police chief said.
The victim was transported to Calmette Hospital in Phnom Penh on Sunday night and a doctor said yesterday that he was in stable condition.
