‘Deadbeat’ one minute, ‘badly beaten’ the next

A drug addict got an unwelcome hit when he was knocked unconscious by a crowd in Poipet town on Sunday as he pursued his sister through the streets with a cleaver.

The brother, 35, had repeatedly pestered his sister for drug money. When his 25-year-old sister refused, he grabbed the weapon and chased her into a nearby market, where locals knocked him unconscious before police arrived at the scene.

The brother is receiving medical care at a local hospital. Kampuchea Thmey
