Violent man detained

A 55-YEAR-old man accused of attacking his wife with a hoe was placed in pretrial detention after an appearance at Stung Treng provincial court yesterday, officials said. Soun Leang, chief of the provincial Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection Bureau, said yesterday that the victim had been sent to the provincial hospital with a broken hand and serious injuries to her head. He said the man had blamed the attack on a drunken rage, but noted that the victim had reported that it “was not the first time” he had lashed out violently towards her.
