Man throws knife at back of rude friend
Police arrested a 22-year-old man accused of hurling a knife at his friend in a fit of vengeful anger in Kampong Thom province’s Stung Sen town on Tuesday. Police said the suspect and the victim had begun to argue upon the suspect’s return from a trip to Thailand. As the victim was walking away, the suspect threw the knife at his back. The victim was sent to hospital. The accused claimed the suspect “was rude” to him, hence the need to throw the knife. KAMPUCHEA THMEY

Cops put two and two together, arrest thief
Police arrested a 22-year-old man in Kampot town this week after he asked officers to write up a sale contract for a stolen motorbike. Police became suspicious when the suspect told them he was selling the bike for US$300, and offered them $100 to write up the contract “in a very short time”. After police questioned the suspect about his willingness to accept such a small price and the need to offload the bike swiftly, he confessed to stealing the bike from a drunken man in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district on Monday. He was sent to provincial court. RASMEY KAMPUCHEA
