Chivalrous husband left injured in debt dispute

A husband took one in the head while trying to protect his wife over a debt collection dispute in Por Sen Chey district on Wednesday, police said.

It all started last month, when one woman, a vendor, borrowed $120 from another woman and promised to pay it back within 30 days.

She didn’t, and after the deadline passed, the lender came to collect.

The woman who owed money pulled out a cleaver and allegedly went to hack the vendor, but her husband got in the way, leaving him injured. Police arrested the suspect. KOH SANTEPHEAP
