Machete spree ends with man chopping a house

A Battambang ne’er-do-well was arrested on Friday for trying to settle a dispute with a machete.

Military police said a local teen had told police that the suspect was responsible for hacking three villagers two weeks prior, an act of civic-mindedness that did not endear him to the alleged attacker.

Bristling with no fewer than three machetes, the suspect went to the teen’s home to settle the score, but finding him away, settled for chopping down a wall of the house before he was arrested. Nokorwat
