Too late to apologise for Kandal cousin-beater

A very touchy construction worker from Kandal province is suffering the consequences of his thin skin after he beat his cousin with a bamboo pole on Wednesday.

Police reported that the victim, a local farmer, was admonishing his brother for going out at night, stealing and doing drugs in his home.

The suspect, overhearing the dressing-down, thought the farmer was insulting him, and took a stick to the man’s head, causing serious injuries.

The suspect fled to Phnom Penh, but came back grovelling for forgiveness the following day, and was arrested by police.
