Victim in right place; he’ll need a drink after that

“The customer is always right” is an adage that Siem Reap tuk-tuk drivers don’t seem to agree with, as five of them were arrested for attacking a 20-year-old on Pub Street on Tuesday.

Cops claim the young man, dissatisfied with the service, started an argument, which turned physical before he was chased and beaten by the troupe of tuk-tuk owners.

All of the drivers were rounded up later and chauffeured downtown to answer questions about the incident.
