Police Blotter: 22 Feb 2013

Bark, bite and bike gone after dogs’ dishes spiked
Time ran out for four watchdogs when they were poisoned by motorbike thieves in Kampong Chhnang’s Boribor district this week. A resident discovered the bodies of her four-legged friends on Tuesday morning and realised they had been poisoned, suggesting, perhaps, that dogs really do eat anything. The woman also noticed her two-wheeled ride was missing and alerted police, who are hunting the canine killers. Rasmey Kampuchea   

Relative shame for teen crook who targeted aunt
Charity may begin at home, but burglaries begin at auntie’s house. That was the case for a desperate teen caught breaking into his relative’s house in Kampong Chhnang town on Tuesday. According to the police, the woman returned home late to find a burglar poised to ransack her house. After alerting the police, she was relatively shocked to discover the suspect was in fact her nephew, 16, who claimed money problems had forced him into this tight family affair. He was sent to court. Rasmey Kampuchea

Rice growers unwind with fistfight over girl
It takes two to tango and a third person – along with a couple of others who enjoy a scrap – to clear the dance floor of romance and replace it with violence. Four gangsters were arrested in Kampong Thom’s Baray district following a fight at a village party on Wednesday. Villagers had gathered to celebrate a year in the rice fields, but the hard work and toil continued when a love triangle arose and two gangsters fought it out over the same girl. Police arrested the pair, along with two other brawlers. Koh Santepheap

Slurring drunkard lets his knife do the talking
A thin-skinned drunkard was arrested in Koh Kong province on Tuesday, accused of stabbing a man who taunted him for his love of a drop. The 32-year-old was walking – and at times, staggering – home when a passer-by pointed out to him what a dreadful embarrassment he was. The boozer was in no state to laugh it all off and flew into a rage, stabbing his tormenter. He was later arrested. Koh Santepheap

Man accused of beating, seriously injuring, wife
A 32-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday after allegedly attacking his wife for not preparing dinner on time. The male in question, from Banteay Meanchey’s Poipet town, seriously injured his wife after returning home and finding his supper wasn’t prepared. Neighbours who overheard the commotion called the police, who arrived and arrested the attacker as he tried to flee the scene. His wife was sent to hospital. Kampuchea Thmey
