Police Blotter: 21 Aug 2012

Sorry, dad! Cleaver chop an accident, says mum
A 23-year-old man inadvertently chopped his father in the gut with a cleaver on Friday in Kampong Cham’s Chamkaleu district. The victim’s 55-year-old wife said her son was chopping up ice on the wooden floor of their home when her husband ceremoniously slipped and lay sprawled on the wet surface. The son then accidentally released the cleaver, which sliced the father in the stomach. The victim was sent to hospital, while the son, in a panicked state, fled. Police have not confirmed whether they will take action. Koh Santepheap

Armpit shooting ends volatile friendship
Friends became foes on Friday in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district when a 29-year-old was allegedly shot by his 32-year-old BFF. Police said the two were slumbering at a hotel, and when they awoke, a fight broke out. The suspect drew a gun and shot the victim in the left armpit, who was hospitalised immediately. The injured man’s family filed a complaint with police, but by this time, police said he had bolted to another residence. His location was later exposed and police arrested him. Nokorwat

Woman in hospital after axe attack in Kampot
A violent robbery on Thursday in Kampot’s Teuk Chhou district is still swathed in mystery. Police allege an unknown man blocked off a 35-year-old woman on her way to a local market with his motorcycle at about 2:20pm, while wielding a razor-sharp axe. He allegedly demanded her money, and when she resisted, struck her twice with the weapon. The victim fell to the ground and the crook took off with $100. A witness sent the victim to hospital, and police are still searching for the suspect. Koh Santepheap

Dentist’s moto yanked from outside clinic
Two calculating teens thieved an unsuspecting tooth doctor’s motorcycle on Sunday in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district. Police alleged the 30-year-old dentist parked his vehicle outside his clinic, when it disappeared at about noon. Witnesses said they saw the two young men whisk the motorcycle away and zip away down the road. Police are still looking for the suspects. Nokorwat

Booze-fuelled suspect puts the wood to chum
Two drunks fell foul of each other on Saturday in Takeo’s Traing district when a theft accusation turned ugly. Police said the intoxicated suspect accused his 46-year-old fellow villager of pilfering his mobile phone when they were drinking several weeks ago. The villager denied the accusations, and the paranoid suspect seized a two-metre plank of wood and struck the victim over the head. The victim was hospitalised and the suspect is still on the run.
