A drink denied, like a moto untended, has all-too-predictable consequences. So learned two men on Tuesday night in Banteay Meanchey’s Mongkol Borei district.
Police said the duo was walking past a local watering hole when a pair of overzealous boozers, ones they’d tussled with in the past, insisted they sit down for a drink.
The subsequent refusal set our suspects’ blood boiling and the row soon escalated into an attack. Both victims were sent to hospital, while the attackers were arrested that same night. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
