Drunk homeowner goes to home he doesn’t own

Villagers in Kandal’s Takhmao town injured an unfortunate worker after mistaking him for a thief on Sunday night.

Police said the 24-year-old man walked home drunk and knocked on the wrong door, running away after a man, 51, opened and shouted “thief, thief”. Neighbours chased the man down and punched him several times.

Police intervened and sent him to a clinic, saying villagers should not attack suspects even if they are thought to be criminals. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
