It's unclear whether a dance-off sparked an argument in a nightclub early on Thursday morning in Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district that left a group of partygoers with a slew of nasty injuries.
Police said a group of three men and two women had started arguing with another clubgoer on the dancefloor.
He left, but returned with more than 10 friends armed with machetes, sticks and rocks.
They blocked the road outside the club and beat the victims, and robbed them blind. The suspects escaped. KOH SANTEPHEAP
