Pagoda party punch-up ends with police arrival

A furtive glance, a brushed cheek, offended honour, a gang battle … or as police in Kratie town call it, Tuesday. Authorities said the trouble went down at a pagoda dance party where a man touched a woman’s cheek unbidden.

Enraged, her boyfriend left and gathered a number of friends who returned and squared off with the cheek-toucher and his own mates. Rocks and axes joined fists and feet in the ensuing maelstrom of violence, which only ended when police arrived. A sole arrest was made as the rest escaped. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
