Three men questioned over brutal stabbing

Three homeless men were sent for questioning at Preah Sihanouk Provincial Court yesterday afternoon for allegedly stabbing a man in the face on the premises of a local NGO providing them with support.

Kol Phally, Preah Sihanouk province’s deputy police chief, said the attack happened at around 11am on Saturday at a centre run by M’Lop Tapang, an NGO that works with street children and had been offering support to all four men.

According to Phally, 30-year-old Moan Nget stabbed Mey Chan, 20, in the face, causing him to bleed profusely. He named Chea Bo, 28, and Chhem Chheang, 30, as accomplices to the attack.

“It was violence driven by spite,” he said of the stabbing.

Tea Racchun, an employee at M’Lop Tapang, said the men, who were all homeless, had always “had problems with one another” since seeking help from the NGO as youths.

“They come to receive assistance from the organisation whenever they need books, pens or consultation,” he added. “Nowadays, they live on their own.”
