PA SAYS CAR'S GONE TOO FAR; SON DIFFERS
Police in Kandal province have accused a 21-year-old man of attacking his own father with a cleaver. The suspect allegedly became enraged when his 61-year-old father sold his car, which he enjoyed taking out for a leisurely drive. The father had criticised his son for prancing about in public, wasting money and getting his parents into trouble. In response, the younger man took a cleaver and allegedly struck his father in the head and shoulders 10 times before fleeing. The victim was sent to a local health clinic. Witnesses said he had brought court complaints against his son twice in the past, but withdrew them both times at the behest of his wife. This time however, the injured man vowed to use the full force of the law.

KAMPONG THOM COPS THINK OF THE KIDS
Police in Kampong Thom province say a 31-year-old woman was arrested Saturday after she allegedly threw a rice pot at her husband’s head. The incident stemmed from a marital spat. Apparently, the man came back Saturday afternoon clearly intoxicated. He pulled out a battery and some electric cricket-hunting tools and announced that he was going after crickets. The woman, concerned this might not have been the best idea, stopped her husband. Angry voices turned to pushes and shoves, and the wife fell to the ground near a rice pot. She then grabbed the pot and allegedly threw it at her husband’s head. Her aim was true: It wounded the man “badly”, police said. Police have set the woman free, saying that if she were imprisoned, there would be no one to take care of their children.

DON’T HAVE A COW, POLICE TELL SUSPECT
A 41-year-old woman was arrested on Sunday on suspicion of stealing two cows in Banteay Meanchey province. Police said the suspect was apprehended after a woman who sells beef reported her to police. The suspect allegedly confessed to stealing the cows, then helpfully offered that this was the second time she had committed such thievery. Police returned the cows to their rightful owners and sent the woman to court.
