Cops do best in fracas with Russey Keo lads

Some thuggish workers in the capital chose their victims unwisely when they allegedly set upon police officers in Russey Keo district on Wednesday night.

Authorities reported that eight of their men were patrolling on motorbikes when they spotted a pair of men on a moto drop a walkie-talkie.

Upon questioning, the youths got their mates on the line who arrived to help take on the officers. One was mildly injured and two walkie-talkies were busted before the officers fired shots in the air to disperse their assailants.

Police back-up arrived promptly and arrested six among the pack.
