Three men were arrested in Banteay Meanchey’s Poipet town on Sunday after making good on their Lunar New Year resolution to badly beat more co-workers this year.
Police said the three construction workers were drunkenly ushering in the new year with two colleagues when an argument escalated into a fight.
Grabbing rocks and a knife, the men allegedly laid into the two unfortunate partiers, leaving them seriously injured. Police intervened, and sent the two victims to hospital and the three suspects to court. KOH SANTEPHEAP
