Man prefers knives and booze over crops

A stabbing suspect’s escape plan proved less than foolproof on Sunday in Kampong Cham’s Memot district.

Police said after returning home from a booze binge, he got an earful from his sister-in-law about shirking his duties gathering the family’s rice crop.

Infuriated, he said he had no obligation to work the fields, then drove home the point with a knife. After fleeing the house, he decided to hide in a local market where he “pretended to be a customer”. Needless to say, he’s now in jail. DEUM AMPIL
