Security guard injured after shocked outburst

An inexplicable fight in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district wounded a security guard on Wednesday.

According to police, a local man had been drinking with friends when he spied the sleeping sentry.

The man grabbed the guard’s baton and hit him on the leg, prompting the exclamation “Are you crazy?” Offended, the drunk went home, grabbed a cleaver and returned, allegedly striking the guard in the jaw and leg.

The suspect fled, but was caught by patrolling cops. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
