Teen’s boozing ends in act of random violence

A teen in Poipet town learned on Saturday night that underage drinking can be dangerous in unexpected ways.

After the booze and snacks he and his friend were indulging in ran out, the teen took his moto to a nearby market for more.

As he and his bike swayed through the streets, the teen encountered a group of thugs on two bikes who attacked him with a sword.

The victim, who had a finger hacked off, fled to a nearby casino, where staff called police and helped get him to hospital. Two men were arrested, but their motive is unclear. KOH SANTEPHEAP
