Fare nearly fatal for Phnom Penh motodop

Villagers and police officers ganged up and caught an axe-wielding man after a bloody encounter that severely injured a motodop on Tuesday in Phnom Penh’s Chbar Ampov district.

Police said the suspect, 25, asked the driver to drop him home. When they arrived, he told the motodop to wait.

He returned with an axe and hacked the back of the driver’s head. Witnesses shouted for help, and the suspect tried to escape but villagers and police managed to chase him down. NOKORWAT
