Soldier scrap ends with scarpering thief shot

A soldier found himself in an off-duty battle in Oddar Meanchey province on Monday.

The 42-year-old caught a man breaking into his car and stealing a gun holster.

He allegedly attacked the soldier with a wooden stick, but ran away when the soldier fired warning shots.

The soldier shot the man in the leg as he ran. The alleged thief was hospitalised and authorities are looking into whether the suspect is a drug addict or mentally ill. NOKORWAT
