A drug-addled family spat landed one man in the hospital in Poipet town on Saturday. Police said that on the day in question, the victim’s brother-in-law was drinking and doing drugs with some friends.
When they ran out, however, things got ugly, with the man yelling at everyone in sight, throwing things and demanding money to buy more.
When the victim chastised him for his hell-raising habits, the brother-in-law snapped, attacking the victim with an axe.
The man was almost killed, but was rushed to hospital, while the suspect was sent to court. Koh Santepheap
