Birthday bash gives way to birthday bashing

Birthday bash gives way to birthday bashing

All the fun went out of a woman’s birthday when three men were injured and five others arrested in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district on Wednesday.

According to police, a man, 28, invited two friends to his girlfriend’s birthday. The girlfriend ignored him and his friends, spending most of her time with five other men.

Angered, the boyfriend threw a beer glass on the ground, prompting an argument with his girlfriend.

He and his friends then left on a motorbike, but the group of five followed, eventually beating them with stones and wooden sticks.

They were badly injured before police intervened and arrested the five men. KOH SANTEPHEAP
