Police Blotter: 8 Aug 2012

Car thief with chutzpah goes after police vehicle
Maybe he got bored of stealing from civilians, or maybe he wanted a challenge. Maybe the fact that the cops left the keys in their car led him to think it was an invitation to go joy-riding. Whatever the reason, police say a 23-year-old man in Siem Reap attempted to steal a squad car on Sunday. Police said that the car belonged to officers working the night shift. The suspect tried to get in and drive off but the police saw him and made an immediate arrest. He was sent to court the same day. Koh Santepheap

Hungry husband has bad reaction to no meal
A 56-year-old man in Stung Treng town was so upset at his wife for not making him a meal that he attacked her, police said. She must have been a really good cook to provoke such an aggressive response from her hungry husband, who had been drinking, and drinking on an empty stomach at that. When the police showed up to arrest the allegedly famished wife-beater, she told them that he was often drunk and out of sorts. They sent him to court yesterday. Koh Santepheap

Homeless men argue with each other, fight
A 29-year-old man was arrested in Battambang on Monday after seriously injuring another man in a fight. The two suspects involved in the tiff were homeless and without family, said police. On the day of the incident, the victim accused the suspect of sleeping and not looking for work or food. The suspect argued with the victim and then stabbed him with a knife. Police arrested the suspect and sent the victim to the hospital. Koh Santepheap
