Beggar victim of vicious attack after argument

A beggar is recovering in hospital after a violent confrontation in Kandal’s Kien Svay district on Tuesday.

Police said the inebriated 46-year-old had gotten into an argument with a woman in the neighbourhood.

When her brother came to her defence, the beggar promptly punched him in the face – twice.

The attack only served to enrage the brother, who grabbed an axe and hit the man in the back and head – an action that sent the beggar to hospital and the suspect to jail. NOKORWAT
