Cockfight becomes foot race when cops show up

Cockfight becomes foot race when cops show up

A cock-fight, a police raid, a mad scramble for the exits – or as they call it in Kratie town, Saturday night.

Police said the raid, spurred by a tip from neighbours, came upon approximately 10 people engaged in the blood sport, all of whom attempted to flee.

In all police managed to arrest six people, including the home’s owners, and confiscated six motos and three fighting birds.

A handful of arrestees were slightly injured after jumping from the first story in their bid to escape. Koh Santepheap
