Customer messes with wrong karaoke hostess

Customer messes with wrong karaoke hostess

A surly singer and a hard-nosed hostess clashed at a karaoke bar in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district yesterday.

The patron, dismayed by the 30-minute wait, began cursing at the karaoke hostess, and an argument ensued.

Not one to be spoken to in such a fashion, the woman allegedly took off her high-heeled shoe and beat the man in the head and face, injuring him.

The foul-mouthed victim was sent to hospital, but there’s been no word on whether the waitress had been arrested or not. KOH SANTEPHEAP
