A group of protesters really put the boots to a police officer in Banteay Meanchey on Sunday night, using their shoes to hit him numerous times in the head after driving a car into a wall.
Police said the men were chasing a man on a motorbike through the streets of Poipet when they lost control of their car.
A patrolling police officer arrived at the scene to investigate and was confronted by the gangsters, who hit him with their shoes as well as punched, kicked and slapped him before fleeing.
Police are now searching for the assailants. DEUM AMPIL
