ACCUSED'S OLDER SIS TRIES TO STOP FIGHT
Police in Poipet town are looking for four men accused of beating a man who tried to overtake their car on a motorbike. The 41-year-old victim told police while he was recovering at Banteay Meanchey provincial hospital that he tried to overtake the car, but ended up almost hitting it when he swerved to avoid a pothole. The group in the car then started to beat him, he said. During the beating, however, one of the assailant’s older sisters came to the scene and intervened, promising that she would help solve the dispute later. Police say they would only bring the four men to justice once they receive a letter of complaint from the victim’s family.
