Man stabs neighbour over pet complaint

Police were searching for a man who allegedly stabbed and seriously injured his 60-year-old neighbour in the capital’s Russei Keo district on Monday following an argument about the man’s dog, officials said yesterday. Tuol Sangke commune police chief Huy Hean said the two had reportedly argued after the victim, Som Kim San, asked the suspect to tie up his dog after it had attacked her granddaughter. “[The suspect] was very angry and took a knife and stabbed her many times in an attempt to kill her,” he said, adding that the suspect had fled the scene. Som Kim San remains in hospital.
