A family dispute led to a bloody near-fatality in Kratie town on Sunday. Police discovered a 30-year-old man unconscious in front of his home, lying in a pool of blood with obvious stab wounds.
The victim’s sister said her drunken husband was the culprit. The man had grown angry about his wife’s bond with her brother, and while she was out shopping, vengefully attacked his brother-in-law with a knife and then fled.
Neighbours alerted police to the gory affair, who rushed the man to hospital. KOH SANTEPHEAP
