Capital police took down a sword-swinging wild man in the capital’s Sen Sok district on Sunday, but let him go following a rather novel excuse – spirit possession.

Cops on the scene said the 28-year-old had terrorised the neighbourhood before their arrival, attacking a variety of inanimate objects including a motorbike and a neighbour’s door.
