A BRUTAL axe attack on Wednesday afternoon left three men, including a police officer, in a serious condition in Kampong Cham province’s Koh Sotin district. Ma Chanda, a deputy police chief of Koh
Sotin district, said the suspect, 42-year-old Po Sokhom, had been arrested after he attacked his brother-in-law, then attacked his uncle and a police officer. Witnesses said the suspect, toting two axes, approached his brother-in-law while he was drinking by his house and hacked him several times in the head. Long Bunmao, a deputy police chief for the district, arrived on the scene and, with the help of the suspect’s uncle, 56-year-old Sun Chrech, attempted to subdue the suspect. Both men were also axed in the head during the struggle.
