Teen stabbed at ‘gangster’ club brawl
A 17-YEAR-OLD was stabbed in the stomach last week in an argument in Kampot province’s Kampot town. According to police, two groups of men, drank beer and danced at a nightclub together. A man in one “gangster” group stepped on the foot of a man in the other group and caused an argument. Both groups left the club to brawl outside because the guard would not let them fight inside, and one man was stabbed in the ensuing mêlée. The other gangsters promptly fled the scene. The victim was sent to a provincial hospital but was later transferred to Phnom Penh because his condition was severe.
