Hunger got the best of a Kandal province ex-convict who destroyed some appliances and tried attacking family members when his dad wouldn’t give him money for noodles.

Becoming enraged in Sa’ang district on Monday after his request for cash was nixed, the 24-year-old broke a jug, a fan, part of a motorbike and plates before chasing after his mother and grandfather.

Both got away, unlike the jailbird, who was soon apprehended by police and hauled in for questioning over the outburst.
