Man mounts toothless defence against police

A man in his 30s lost a tooth during a scuffle with cops in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district on Tuesday night.

Police said they were patrolling the area when they spotted a man mounting a bike with no plate.

Suspecting theft, police asked him for his vehicle registration but the man refused.

When the cops tried to confiscate the bike, a fight broke out during which the man was punched in the mouth and lost one tooth.

The man blamed officers, but the police claimed that another bystander had punched him. The bike has been impounded pending investigation.
