Restaurant dispute

A Korean reastaurant owner's wife was assaulted and property was stolen by a group

of people led by a policeman and a soldier on Nov2.

The attack on the Dong Bang and Coffee shop on Sihanouk Blvd followed a dispute over

money between owner Woo Sang Lim and the two men.

The two men had arranged for redecoration work to be done at the restaurant.

Woo Sang Lim said he had paid more than $20,000 to the soldier for the work, who

later demanded twice that amount. Two truckloads of people, some in military uniform

turned up at the restaurant, pushed and hit Woo Sang Lim's wife and helped themselves

to televisions, videos , other goods and hundreds of dollars of cash.

They were trying to load the restaurant's generator onto a truck when several police

officers called to the scene fired warning shots, and they fled.

Woo Sang Lim's lawyer later recovered some of the property, but not the cash, which

was given to the police.

A police spokesman said the matter would go to court to decide whether the restaurant

owner owed the soldier money.
