Father-son bonding goes bafflingly awry

Father-son bonding goes bafflingly awry

Why did a Banteay Meanchey man beat his father within an inch of his life?

It’s a question authorities will have to figure out without the help of the tight-lipped 53-year-old victim.

Police said the father-son duo had been having dinner and drinking wine on Sunday before the family matriarch returned to find dad splayed out and beaten.

While he identified his son as the attacker, he refused to explain further.

Police are now hunting the son, who fled after the incident, while pop is recovering in hospital.
