Booze and cleaver turn out as poor bedfellows

A drinking session turned from buoyant to bloody on Sunday when a man hacked his friend’s head with a cleaver. The pair was among five workers from a brick factory having a drink in Kandal’s Takhmao town.

According to police, the gathering started out as friendly, but things took a violent turn when, after an argument, the 23-year-old attacker left the scene, returned with a cleaver and allegedly began hacking his 22-year-old friend’s head. Police intervened, arrested the offender and sent his friend to hospital. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
