Combat ensues after seller shortchanged

Two men were arrested in Banteay Meanchey’s Poipet district on Saturday after one tried to “buy” a mobile phone from the other, without actually handing over any cash. According to police, the seller was, to put it lightly, a little angry that the man had taken his phone without actually paying for it. Though the buyer pleaded that he needed another week to cough up the dough, the seller was having none of it and eventually a fight broke out.

Police were called and both men were brought to the station to find a solution.
