Police hold club staff responsible for attack

Police sent two staff members of the Monaco Club disco to Phnom Penh municipal court yesterday to be charged with beating four guests Monday night, allegedly causing serious bodily harm.

Phnom Penh Thmey commune chief Keo Sunthorth said club manager Rithy Vatanak, 32, and Suon Phirom, a 27-year-old supervisor, were arrested at the club on the night of the incident.

A Sen Sok district police officer who asked not to be named said five young men and two young women had been asked to leave after they began shoving other customers on the dance floor.

After paying, one of the group allegedly smashed a glass on the floor, then attempted to leave.

The group was stopped outside by the club’s guards, and four were taken back inside, where they were allegedly beaten.

“The victims were seriously beaten with sticks,” the officer said. “The suspects also used electric batons to shock them.”

According to the officer, the victims managed to escape by climbing over a back fence before passing out on a nearby street.
