Man held for alleged assault on nephew

A man will be sent to Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Wednesday after he was arrested on suspicion of seriously beating up his four-year-old nephew on Monday in Kouk Khleang commune’s Dei Thmey village in the capital’s Sen Sok district.

Sen Sok district police chief Huor Mengvang identified the suspect as Pen Chantra, 34, a tuk-tuk driver in Phnom Penh. A villager called police and reported that the Chantra assaulted his nephew.

Police arrested him immediately and brought the suspect to Kouk Khleang commune police station, said commune police chief Duong Vannak, adding that the suspect kicked the boy badly, breaking a chest bone on the right side, and hit him on other parts of the body with a belt and a broom.

The boy was admitted to Kantha Bopha children’s hospital in Phnom Penh by his parents.
