Injuries a’plenty but no charges in capital brawl

Two men were badly injured in a Dangkor district brawl in Phnom Penh on Friday. According to police, two men were walking down the street when two others on a moto pulled up and started trading cross words.

A fight broke out, with each side wielding rocks and a wooden stick, and raged on until one man from each side was left with serious injuries to the head. Police arrested the four, who are trying to find a compromise that won’t land them in court. Nokorwat
