Man brandishes sword at girlfriend’s mother

Man brandishes sword at girlfriend’s mother

A lovelorn man in Prey Veng province’s Peam Chor district threatened the mother of his girlfriend with a sword on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old had been told by the woman that he had no character, and that he was not to contact her daughter, whom she had sent to work in Thailand.

Incensed, the man went out for a few drinks then returned with the metre-long sword, inadvertently confirming the mother’s suspicions about him in the process.

Police showed up and hauled the suspect away.
