Military police officer fires gun near teens

SEN Sok district police arrested a 37-year-old Tuol Kork district military police officer on Tuesday night on Russian Federation Boulevard in Phnom Penh, after the officer recklessly fired his gun to intimidate two teenagers.

Mak Hong, Sen Sok district police chief, said yesterday that the military police officer fired his gun into the air twice to threaten two teenagers who the officer claims intentionally drove their motorcycle at him and his girlfriend as they were walking along the road. He added that no one was injured in the incident.

“He fired his pistol anarchically because he was angry with the two young men. We have already sent him to the district military police for inspection,” he said, declining to comment further.

Kith Sophal, Sen Sok district military police commander, claimed that he did not have any information regarding the case, but that detainees are normally sent to the Phnom Penh military police station.

Chan Veasna, an administration official with the Phnom Penh military police, said he also had no information regarding the case.
