History of abuse leads to attack on stepfather

A long history of spousal abuse proved too much for a Poipet town stepson to bear on Wednesday.

According to police, the man, who had long watched his stepfather beat his mother, finally took matters into his own hands, allegedly grabbing a knife and stabbing the stepfather.

He tried to flee, but was apprehended by police, and reportedly admitted to the stabbing, saying he couldn’t bear the sight of his mother being mistreated. DEUM AMPIL
