Knife-wielding madman legitimately mad: police

A terrivied family in Banteay Meanchey’s Poipet town had a lucky escape on Sunday after a man entered their home with a knife and attacked them.

A young boy opened the door to the 40-year-old man, who lashed out at the family with the blade, causing minor injuries, police said.

A neighbour heard the family’s cries for help and fought the attacker off. Police detained the man, sending him to a psychiatric hospital after discovering he suffered from mental ill health. Koh Santepheap
