As afterschool activities go, being mistaken for a robber and pummeled by security guards has got to be among the worst.
But that’s just what happened in the capital’s Tuol Kork district last Monday when a 27-year-old uni student, out with friends at a nightclub, decided to loiter near a car parked outside.
Club security, mistaking him for a thief who stole another guest’s car mirror, proceeded to tie his hands and thrash him, police said.
His friends witnessed the incident and reported it to police, who brought the guards in for questioning. KOH SANTEPHEAP
