After violence, revenge always seemed in cards

Revenge was a dish best served with a bamboo stick in Battambang’s Sampov Loun district on Sunday.

According to police, a man was riding a moto when another man blocked his way and struck him several times in the head with the aforementioned stick.

Police quickly arrested a suspect who said he himself had been attacked by the victim during a card game the week before.

The victim’s family demanded $500 for the bamboo beating, but the suspect could only afford $130. Police sent him to court. NOKORWAT
