Debt drives drug dealer to strike, stab sister

A 23-year-old Takeo woman is recovering in hospital after being violently attacked by her own brother, a teen drug dealer.

Police said the victim had gone to ask her brother to return money he had borrowed months ago.

The resulting argument saw the young hood flip out, hitting her with a chair then managing to stab her with a knife before fleeing.

Soon arrested, he confessed not only to the assault but also to moto thefts and dealing. NOKORWAT
