Police Blotter: 4 Mar 2013

Hungry drunk flings flying saucer at wife
A 37-year-old man in Mondulkiri’s Koh Nhek district was arrested for dishing out serious injury on Thursday to his wife, who had refused to cook for him. Police said the man returned home drunk and hungry one night, and when his wife denied his dinner request, he threw a plate at her, badly hurting her head. The woman was immediately sent to the hospital, and police arrested the husband, who said he’d been inebriated and unable to control his temper. Nokorwat

Police toast successful drug investigation
Fine wine is supposed to age well, but two drug dealers in Banteay Manchey’s Poipet town found that the case of wine where they’d hidden some stronger stuff didn’t serve them well against police who’d been conducting a prolonged investigation into their doings. When, after two months of preparation, police finally arrested the two distributors on Saturday, the pair admitted to having hidden two packages of meth inside the classy container en route to their customers.  Nokorwat

Motorbike not worth it for one medical student
A medical student in the capital’s Meanchey district found herself in harm’s way on Thursday when three men demanded she hand over her motorbike. Police said the three men had followed the student home, and as she was opening her front gate, held a gun to her head. Feeling the prognosis was not good if she tried to resist, the student handed over the bike. Police are searching for the men. KOH SANTEPHEAP

Palm tree gets in way of driver, injuring three
A 30-year-old driver in Kampot’s Kampong Trach district found that falling coconuts are not the only hazard palm trees pose to drivers when he crashed his car into a palm’s trunk on Saturday. Police said the speeding car, also transporting two passengers, swerved to avoid a girl cycling in the same direction who was about to make a turn and smashed into the tree. Three passengers were injured.

Day of love takes vicious turn in Kampong Speu
Military police arrested two men in Kampong Speu’s Phnom Sruoch district on Friday for injuring two others at a wedding party two months ago. According to police, an argument between the four men celebrating the happy couple’s joyous union led the two aggressors to unite metal poles with the victims’ faces and backs, seriously injuring them, before absconding together to another province. The victims kept their vows to punish their attackers by filing complaints to police, who arrested them when they returned from their jaunt. Nokorwat
