Brutal beating in Poipet ends in hospital, arrests

A conflict between a few men in Banteay Meanchey’s Poipet town nearly cost a life on Monday when two men beat and stomped one man nearly to death.

The victim was sitting in front of his house when two rivals came by and relentlessly beat him, stomping on his stomach, police said.

Neighbours called police, who say things could have been much worse if they had not sent him to a hospital as quickly as they did. Police arrested the alleged assailants. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
