For one Kandal con, the year 2009 seemed a lifetime ago; for police, it felt like yesterday.
And so it goes in one of the blotter’s routine chestnuts, which repeated itself on Saturday.
Police said the 24-year-old suspect fled Ang Snuol district five years ago after an argument at a wedding party saw him beat a man over the head with a stick.
Thinking the matter had faded into memory, he returned to his village, only to find his crime all too fresh in the minds of the local cops. Court awaits. NOKORWAT
