Teenager injured after farmer redirects anger

A furious farmer in Tbong Khmum’s O’Reang-ou district exhibited what psychologists refer to as aggressive displacement on Sunday.

Police said the farmer had gotten into an argument with another villager, who fled the scene as the farmer grew enraged and grabbed a bamboo stick.

The farmer went looking for the object of his ire and, unable to find him, decided to knock out a 14-year-old boy who had nothing to do with the dispute.

The farmer, perhaps realising his Freudian folly, tried to escape, but was arrested the same day. KOH SANTEPHEAP
