Housewarming hijinks give way to swordplay

Housewarming hijinks give way to swordplay

Police in Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district are on the lookout for six men who hacked a woman with a samurai sword and made off with her motorbike on Wednesday night.

The 31-year-old woman was driving home from a friend’s housewarming party at about 9:30pm, when a gang of six men on several motorbikes followed and ran her off the road, police said.

When she tried to escape, one of the men, armed with a samurai sword, gashed her left hand and head, before the group made off with her bike. Police are investigating. KOH SANTEPHEAP
