Vicious beatdown ends with little time to spare

A roadway spat led to a brutal gang beating in the capital’s Meanchey district on Sunday. A group of three men exchanged cross words with a much larger group of 10, then tried to flee on moto into a nearby factory’s grounds.

One man, abandoning his moto, tried to flee on foot, only to trip and quickly find himself surrounded.

The gang of ruffians then proceeded to attack the man with sticks, stones and machetes, leaving him unconscious in a pool of blood. Police said if they had been any later, the man likely would have died. KOH SANTEPHEAP
