Drunk assailant should have quit while behind

A persistent construction worker arguably got what was coming to him in Kandal’s Ang Snuol district on Wednesday.

According to police, the drunk worker, enraged when a villager not only refused to buy him drugs but asked a $10 loan be repaid, grabbed a machete and lashed out, only to be disarmed.

After going home to retrieve an axe, he attacked a second time, only to miss again. Finally, the villager grabbed his own cleaver and chopped the worker in the head and shoulder.

The worker was sent to hospital, while the villager was, bafflingly enough, arrested. KOH SANTEPHEAP
