They drank, danced and made merry. It would have been a night to remember for all the right reasons, until three Kampong Thom youths ditched the festivities to settle an old score.

The trio gave chase and beat the 18-year-old to a pulp with their belts.

Police made arrests, discovering they arrived just in time, as the gang had two long swords stashed in their motorbikes for just such an occasion.
