Well, well, well … man attacked over water

Blood is thicker than water, and a dispute over the latter led to some spilling of the former in Kandal’s Koh Thom district on Monday.

Police said a local farmer had gotten angry at a woman for taking water from his well, which was already running low. The argument dragged in the woman’s son, who the farmer ended up striking in the face.

Incensed, the son confronted the farmer later in the day, allegedly attacking him in the stomach with a scythe. The young man tried to escape, but police caught up with him and sent him to court. NOKORWAT
