Young gangsters in the can after chef’s murder

Three men suspected of involvement in the killing of a chef and serious assaults on four of his friends last Friday in Prey Veng province were arrested yesterday.

Police said that a gang of six youths had approached the victim, whom the authorities did not name, and his friends while they had stopped on the Neak Loeung Bridge to admire the view.

The suspects proceeded to urinate on the chef’s feet, causing a heated exchange of words.

The argument led quickly to the suspects drawing knives and wooden bats, allegedly beating and stabbing the victims for several minutes before escaping on motorbikes.

Kly Vicheth, 28, was arrested yesterday, along with brothers Kly Lay, 23, and Kly Sras, 16.

“But during questioning, they did not tell us about their three friends who were involved,” said Seng Sopheak, provincial deputy police chief.
