Barber survives close shave with loan shark

A Phnom Penh barber received a cut of his own when an incensed loan shark tracked him down in Prampi Makara district on Wednesday morning.

Police said the man was drinking coffee at a shop when the lender approached and asked about the status of his loan.

After the barber replied that he was unable to pay, an argument ensued, and the loan shark grabbed a cleaver and hacked the man several times before fleeing on a moto. No arrest was made. NOKORWAT
