Man beaten by gang, wants $10,000 in return

A man was jumped and beaten by a gang of 10 outside his house in Siem Reap on Thursday.

Police said that the victim had just left his home on a moto when a group of men in a Highlander ambushed and surrounded him.

Some hit him with sticks, others used their hands. The victim’s brother in law heard the commotion and ran out to help but all of the suspects fled the scene.

Nonetheless, seven of the attackers were later arrested by police. The victim is pressing charges and demanding $10,000.
