Officer settles for $1,000

A national military police officer has been released from detention after agreeing to pay $1,000 to the man he beat up and threatened over a fender bender, according to municipal military police

Second Lieutenant Yean Ra, 30, was moonlighting as a guard at Ly Hour Money Exchange Shop in the capital’s Prampi Makara district when he was arrested on Wednesday morning, said Captain Seng Chandy with the Phnom Penh Municipal Military Police.

According to Chandy, Ra drove his motorbike into the moto of 35-year-old Kouch Chamroeun. The damage to his own ride enraged him.

“He got very angry with the victim,” Chandy said, adding that Ra slapped and kicked Chamroeun, then pulled a pistol out, threatening to kill.

Military police intervened and temporarily detained him, but the victim withdrew his complaint after Ra offered him $1,000 in compensation, Chandy said.

Neither Ra nor Chamroeun could be reached.
