Case of mistaken identity leads to ambush beating
Police are searching for three men who realised too late they were beating up the wrong person on Saturday. Pursat’s Krakor district police said that the suspects ambushed the victim from behind and beat him until he was seriously injured before noticing they had confused him with someone with whom they had bad blood. After realising their mistake, they fled the scene before police arrived. Rasmey Kampuchea

Man angers vendors after bottle-smashing
A man, about 30 years of age, was arrested in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district after making a mess of the street vendors’ wares on Saturday. Vendors said they first noticed the Englishman because he was speaking to himself, and they became seriously annoyed when he proceeded to smash several drinking glasses and a bottle of wine on display. The angry vendors notified police, who arrested the man and questioned him before handing him off to the commune police office that deals with foreigners. Koh Santepheap
