Thugs take offence to shirtless man on moto

Mobsters can be a touchy – “you looking at me?!” – bunch, but prudery is not usually their style.

Nonetheless, a group of gangsters in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district were angered on aesthetic grounds after a 34-year-old motorcyclist had the temerity to drive past them without wearing a shirt.

They set about the bare-chested driver, claiming his unclad demeanour was a mark of disrespect, toppled him from his moto and caused him serious injury.

The assailants fled, but luckily a neighbour was on hand to help the victim.
