Masseuse says officer shot her

Police are on the hunt for a man identified as a military police officer who allegedly injured a masseuse when he angrily fired his gun after being refused service.

At about 1am on Tuesday, the man walked into a massage parlor in Sen Sok district’s Teuk Thla commune and asked Keo Srey Pov, 47, for a massage, said district police officer Sok Thol. Srey Pov told police that the man had been wearing a military police uniform and that she had seen him in the parlor before, Thol said.

When Srey Pov refused the late-night work, the suspect, who Pov said was drunk, became angry and fired three rounds into the floor near her feet, Thol said. One of the bullets hit her right leg, causing serious injury, he said.

“After shooting, the suspect drove away on his motorbike and successfully escaped from the scene,” Thol said.

Police are investigating in order to learn the suspect’s identity and whereabouts, Thol said.

Kith Sophal, commander of the Sen Sok military police, and Sen Sok district police chief Mak Hong could not be reached for comment yesterday.
