Debt free but nursing cleaver attack wounds

Debt free but nursing cleaver attack wounds

In A stroke of cruel irony, a Kampong Chhnang man was attacked with a cleaver for returning a debt too promptly on Friday.

Police said the victim had been drinking with a fellow villager who asked that he return the 2,000 riel he had borrowed a few weeks prior.

The man handed him the money and immediately stood up to go home and take a bath. Shouting that the victim had “mocked” him by paying and leaving, the suspect hacked him three times in the head, neck and back before escaping. Police are still on the lookout for the attacker. Kampuchea Thmey
