Bad-luck builder beats buddy over phone row

Strong drink and bad luck left a construction worker in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district a little grumpier than usual on Sunday.

According to police, the builder had lost a lot of money drunkenly gambling with his co-workers.

When one of them unceremoniously grabbed his phone to play a game, it was just too much to bear, allegedly prompting the suspect to punch and kick his colleague until he fell from his bed.

The victim’s family filed a complaint, and the suspect was arrested and reportedly confessed the same night. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
