The long arm of the law is matched only by the long memory of the law, much to the chagrin of a man arrested in Kandal’s Koh Thom district on Saturday.
Police said the man was wanted for stabbing another man over an argument four years ago.
Following the alleged attack, the suspect skipped town, only to return last week to visit his family.
The joyous reunion was cut short, however, when cops showed up to enforce the years-old warrant.
Flummoxed, the man told police he thought they had forgotten all about him.
