Man beaten for fighting to remain sans clothes

Two attackers took no mercy on a physically and mentally disabled man in Pailin town on Wednesday.

According to police, the victim – who is missing a leg – is a local drunk with a mental illness and prone to stripping in the middle of street and shouting at passers-by.

When a resident finally asked the man to put his clothes back on, he lashed out, hitting him in the face. Not long after, two men appeared and began badly beating the man with a wooden stick.

Villagers called police, who sent him to hospital, and are on the lookout for the assailants. Koh Santepheap
