Man learns hard way to stop touching heads

If you're ever tempted to touch a stranger’s head in Cambodia, let this blotter item serve as a warning. A 30-year-old man in Kampong Thom found out the dangers the hard way on Tuesday when he approached a man from behind he believed to be a chum and gave him a friendly tousle of the hair. Bad move.

Spinning around, the suspect – a complete stranger – took instant insult, called two friends over, and proceeded to pummel the head-toucher in question.

One of the two mates who joined in managed to escape as police arrived, but the primary suspect and accomplice are headed to court. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
