Police Blotter: 29 May 2013

Cowards attack cowherd from behind with cleaver
While a 26-year-old man was tending his cows in Kampong Chhnang province’s Rolea Ba’ier district on Thursday, three other men had a cow, so to speak, and attacked him with an axe and cleaver. Police said the three men sneaked up on the cowherd in a rice field and hacked him three times on the head and elbow, leaving him unconscious. His relatives later discovered him and sent him to the provincial hospital. The victim’s brother said the three men had been seeking revenge after the victim’s friends had argued with them last month.  Kampuchea Thmey

Medicinal meth? Police reject worker’s claim
Police in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district were unconvinced by an impoverished construction worker’s explanation of medical meth use after they arrested him with two packages of yama on Sunday night. Police said they noticed the man because he had a suspicious look about him. After they found the yama, he explained that he only had been taking the drugs because he had recently been in a traffic accident and could not afford to buy proper medicine to relieve his pain.  Nokorwat

They arrested a 25-year-old man, while the others managed to escape on their bikes.  Nokorwat

Bike thief learns that a good cop never forgets
A SERIAL stealer must have figured he had slipped out of Kampong Speu police’s minds during his five-month sojourn in Thailand, but the cops’ memories were better than he expected and they arrested him on Sunday. Police said the man and his accomplices made a string of motorbike robberies earlier this year, injuring several of their victims. Police caught one of the man’s group, who led them to him.  Koh Santepheap
