Innocent flirtation turned dangerous at a pre-Khmer New Year party in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district on Wednesday night when two people were attacked by a local gang.
Police said the celebrations came to an abrupt end after one of the revellers enlisted three friends to attack the party’s host, a 26-year-old garment worker accused of flirting with the suspect’s girlfriend.
They then attacked a bystander outside of the party. Police quickly cuffed the gang and took them into custody. KOH SANTEPHEAP
