Residents of Poipet town on Monday took justice into their own hands – then vigorously misapplied it to an otherwise innocent drunk for knocking on a local’s door.
Police said the man, who was purportedly so drunk he wasn’t sure what he was doing, was banging on the local’s door with an object, an act neighbours mistook as an attempt to break in.
A crowd grabbed the man and badly beat him before police intervened. When the man came out of his stupor, he avowed his innocence. KOH SANTEPHEAP
