A 22-year-old man was seriously injured in a case of mistaken hairline in Kandal province’s Ang Snuol district on Sunday.
According to police, the victim had given a stranger a friendly pat on the head after mistaking him from behind for an old chum.
Much chagrined, the recipient of the pat demanded an apology, but the perp refused.
He was soon sorry, however, when, on his way home, the suspect allegedly attacked him with a wine bottle before fleeing. DEUM AMPIL
