Swordsmen foiled by CCTV footage in Poipet

A violent attack with a “samurai” sword on Monday in Poipet town could easily have ended with the suspects escaping but for a home security camera.

Police said the victim had returned home at night, only to be jumped by a trio of sword-wielding goons, who slashed him before taking his phone, money and watch, then fleeing.

The video turned in with the man’s subsequent police complaint provided clear views of all three faces, which are now mug shots at the Poipet police station.
