‘Trashy’ man stabbed by angry neighbour

They say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Of course, sometimes, it’s just another man’s trash. So it’s not hard to imagine why a Kandal man’s decision to dump his own refuse in front of his neighbour’s house led to violence on Sunday.

Police said the suspect confronted the man and demanded he take back the trash to his own home, only to be denied. Enraged, he stabbed the man in the back, prompting neighbours to call police. He has since been sent to court, the neighbour was sent to hospital and the trash, we assume, is still waiting for pickup. DEUM AMPIL
