POLICE HOSTAGE IN DOMESTIC DISPUTE
Eight police officers were held hostage for an hour on Sunday after they attempted to intervene in a love triangle. Choun Kim Seang, 24, and her brother, Choun Kim Doch, 21, locked the police officers in a rented house in Kandal's Ang Snuol district. Police said the violence broke out when Bun Chhay, 34 accused Choun Kim Seang of "stealing" her husband. During the dispute, Choun Kim Doch sided with his sister and attacked Bun Chhay with a samurai sword. A female witness to the altercation called police, who were subsequently locked in the rented house of Choun Kim Seang. Once released, the police arrested the siblings and confiscated the samurai sword.
