Mob high on life after beating two addicts

Don't break into someone else’s house to do drugs, a pair of men in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district learned yesterday.

Police said that the duo, aged 28 and 29, snuck into a house and were about to get high when the homeowner returned and shouted for help, thinking they were thieves.

An angry crowd of villagers descended on the fleeing intruders, punching and kicking them until police intervened.

Upon questioning, the men said that they were addicts, not burglars.
