‘You snooze, you bruise,’ unlucky vagrant learns

A homeless man is regretting being so upfront after he was brutally beaten for taking a kip at someone’s front door, rather than his usual hideaway in their backyard.

The man, 30, was awoken from his slumber by the angry homeowner in Daun Penh district on Tuesday.

When he ignored a request to leave – rolling over and going back to sleep – the enraged owner beat him silly.

A man’s home is his castle, but the owner will likely soon realise that a crowded prison cell is anything but. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
