Police Blotter: 12 June 2012

Woman demands money for head injury
A 56-year-old woman demanded compensation of US$250 on Sunday after a mother and daughter beat her in Pailin province’s Pailin town. The mother and daughter reprimanded the woman for stealing vegetables from their field, and handled the matter by hitting her on the head. The pair were arrested after the victim filed a complaint with police, denying the charge and requiring compensation for the injury. Police said the pair would be released if they agreed to compensate the woman. Nokorwat

Husband knocked out by brother-in-law
A drunk husband was beaten unconscious by his brother-in-law on Friday in Stung Treng’s Siem Bok district. The 43-year-old man went home after a drinking session, and his wife, incensed that he had not fixed their motorcycle, began whacking him with a piece of firewood. Unluckily for the husband, the brother-in-law, who had never been a huge fan of the husband, happened to be around. When the couple were quarrelling, the wife’s brother punched the man in the head and left him unconscious. The man filed a complaint with police after he came to. Police arrested the 29-year-old brother-in-law and he confessed to the crime. Kampuchea Thmey

Peace-loving mediator bashed by disputees
A 50-year-old man who allegedly sponged a motorcycle from a 40-year-old was arrested on Friday in Svay Rieng province’s Svay Chrum district. The suspect had borrowed the motorcycle from the owner, and promised to buy the vehicle if his wife liked it. Apparently, she did, because the husband never returned the motor-cycle or gave the owner any money. Instead, he sold the vehicle for $600. When the owner learned about the deal, he filed a complaint with police. Koh Santepheap

Men try to break into car of drunken woman
A woman fell asleep in her car after a drinking bout on Saturday morning in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district. Her nap was rudely disturbed by four men who were trying to break into her car by smashing the windows. But a security guard leaped to the rescue when he spotted the men. He alerted the police, but the four escaped on two motorcycles before the police arrived. The woman was still there, however, and police took the opportunity to warn her about drinking and falling asleep in her car. Rasmei Kampuchea
