Chinese men detained for ‘public disorder’

The Banteay Meanchey provincial court on Monday questioned 16 Chinese nationals who were involved in a brawl in Poipet town.

Banteay Meanchey deputy police chief Seth Los told The Post that the group, all of whom were men, got into a fistfight with four local teenagers in Poipet commune’s Palilay I village.

He said the brawl broke out at 8pm on Sunday. At least two from the Chinese group were injured in the head and arms. When the foreigners called for backup with the intention to fight back, the local teenagers ran away.

The Chinese men then got angry and started yelling, resulting in their arrest for “public disorder”.
