Man shoots teenage neighbour with arrow

A Kratie province man faces an attempted murder charge after he allegedly shot a teenage girl who lives in his village with a crossbow on Friday night.

As the 16-year-old girl walked home from a paddy field in Kbal Romeas commune’s Chrob village that night, Phat Sophal, 27, allegedly shot at her, hitting her shoulder, Ork Borin, provincial military police commander, said.

“The suspect shot the victim and he also had a plan to kill the victim,” Borin said. The victim was taken to the provincial hospital, where staff treated her for a serious shoulder wound.
