MAN KILLS HIS CHUM AFTER DRINKING FEST
Police in Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district are looking for a 32-year-old Vietnamese national who is accused of killing his friend after a drunken dispute. Police said the suspect, a construction worker, and his friend, a 30-year-old carpenter, were drinking alcohol together when a tense verbal argument broke out. The suspect left the scene, then apparently returned holding a sharp knife. Police say the suspect used the knife to viciously stab the victim in the chest. The victim’s family sent the man to a local hospital, but he later died.

A 29-year-old man alleged to be a serial mugger has been arrested and sent to Battambang provincial court after a 30-year-old man said he was robbed last week. The victim said the man ambushed him with a wooden stick and fled the scene with US$10. However, the suspect was arrested later that day. Local villagers called the accused man a drug addict.
