Good-natured ribbing leads to knife in ribs

A 22-year-old has been charged with assault after a Friday-night incident in the capital’s Dangkor district.

Police said a group of workers were out drinking rice wine after a hard day, when two of the men began mocking a colleague.

Shortly thereafter he excused himself to use the restroom, only to return with a knife, which he promptly used to stab his co-workers in the stomach and head.

The suspect fled but was later apprehended, telling police the duo had always looked down on him. KOH SANTEPHEAP
