Tuk-tuk crew takes down driver in tussle

A group of tuk-tuk drivers beat up a 27-year-old man on Tuesday night in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district.

The victim was about to drive away from a family party, when he nearly backed into a tuk-tuk carrying 10 passengers.

In the ensuing argument, the tuk-tuk driver allegedly hit the victim on the head with his belt, after which other drivers ran up to join the beatdown.

The victim was hospitalised with head injuries and one tuk-tuk driver was arrested, while the rest fled the scene.
