‘Random attack’ follows night of fun on Koh Pich

A group of six youths is shaken up and/or nursing their wounds after a seemingly random attack as they ended a night at Koh Pich yesterday.

Police said the group were almost home when a group of “gangsters” riding five motorbikes began to follow them.

Splitting off from the pack, three of the group – one boy and two girls – were chased over a bumpy road outside a factory in Por Sen Chey district, which caused their bike to tip over.

The male driver was then beaten by the pursuers before they took off into the night. Local villagers called an ambulance, but no arrests yet.
