Cleaver to hand to earn more than slap on wrist

Four young men and alcohol proved a predictable recipe for violence on Sunday in Sen Sok district.

Police said the quartet was making a racket when two women emerged from a nearby home asking them to quiet down.

Instead, the men became enraged, and when one threatened the older woman’s niece with a cleaver, she stepped in and received a blow to her own hand.

All four men were arrested, with one confessing to the attack and the others professing their innocence. KOH SANTEPHEAP
