Even mum’s home can’t save you from the fuzz

Police arrested a 25-year-old mama’s boy in Takeo’s Traing district on old assault charges on Monday.

Police said the suspect had an outstanding warrant from 2009 for badly beating another man who insulted him at a party, but had returned to his hometown after years on the run to visit his mummy.

Leaving his mother’s residence to return to life on the lam, the man spotted some approaching policemen and fled into the jungle to elude capture, only to be apprehended hours later.

The suspect reportedly told police if he had thought they’d still remember his face, he never would have returned. KOH SANTEPHEAP
