Accidental brush sees partygoer bum-rushed

A Pchum Ben dance at a pagoda in Svay Rieng’s Chantrea district saw a man take a beating for what he insisted was a bum rap.

Police said the 24-year-old was assaulted after he touched the rear end of another man during a dance. Although he denied intentionally touching the suspect’s bottom, he refused to apologise.

The suspect and his friends then proceeded to beat the man before fleeing the scene. Police are hunting the assailants. KAMPUCHEAP THMEY
