The mistress and the husband came to the door, and the wife slapped the mistress. Police came and arrested all three. The mistress asked for cash from the wife in lieu of filing a complaint.

•Karaoke gunfire leads to arrest of two men
Two men were arrested on Monday after firing a gun in a karaoke parlour in Kandal’s Takmao district. The men were ready to leave and wanted to tip the hostesses in their room. However, one of the hostesses had already left, angering the men, who proceeded to fire two shots at the ceiling and one at the wall. The karaoke parlour owner called police, who arrested the pair but held them for only two hours before releasing them, as they had links to high-ranking government officials. They were later re-arrested.
