Big-eyed bystanders get axed and stoned

A father and son, curious about a growing ruckus outside their house, made the unfortunate decision to get involved on Saturday in Pursat town.

Police said the duo emerged to see a full-scale melee centred on one of their neighbours.

Proving no good deed goes unpunished, the twosome’s attempt to come to his rescue saw them wind up with injuries of their own courtesy of stone and axe-wielding “gangsters”.

The assailants bolted and police are investigating. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
