Homefires kept burning, not to criminal’s benefit

An alleged domestic violence offender in Pursat town learned on Tuesday that home is where the heart is, though unfortunately for him, it’s where an outstanding arrest warrant was as well.

According to police, the man had fled the warrant in 2011 after being accused of habitually beating his sister.

When he returned this week, however, he was surprised to find that police hadn’t forgotten the outstanding complaint.

After being slapped in irons, the man reportedly confessed to knocking out his sibling, saying he was angry that she didn’t cook him dinner. Deum Ampil
