Student doused with acid by four attackers

A 17-year-old male student has been attacked with acid by four other teenagers at his house in the city’s Prampi Makara district, police said. Chea Sok, the district’s deputy police chief, said yesterday that the attack happened at around 6pm on Tuesday and left the victim, Long Rathvisal, with injuries to his face and arms. “The victim was not seriously injured because the acid is not strong,” he said, and Long Rathvisal had been sent to hospital for treatment. The attackers were arrested immediately by police and remain in custody.
