Disabled man more than able to defend self

A man in Banteay Meanchey’s Poipet town picked the wrong beggar to mess with. The man, 29, was allegedly attacked with a knife by the disabled beggar on Saturday after he threatened to take his alms, police said.

According to the beggar, the man often stole the money he had begged for. The man sustained serious injuries, and was sent to the hospital. The beggar’s version of events wasn’t enough to keep him out of jail, however. He is now in court. DEUM AMPIL
