Kratie police prove their elephant-like memory

What's past is prologue, as Shakespeare once wrote, and for a 48-year-old suspect in Kratie town, a past assault with a deadly weapon was prologue to a belated arrest on Tuesday.

Four years ago, the suspect had an argument with a neighbour, who had borrowed an axe from him without asking.

The next time he saw the neighbour, he attacked him with a knife, then fled the scene.

He remained at large for years until returning home, and into the clutches of local police who, to his undoubted chagrin, had not forgotten the incident. KOH SANTEPHEAP
