Man wouldn’t hit a guy with glasses, just glass

The mood at a party in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district was shattered on Tuesday when a man smashed a glass over the head of a rowdy attendee.

According to police, the victim had sauntered up to a pretty young woman and asked to clink glasses with her. She refused.

Consumed with anger and shame, the man smashed his glass on the floor and began arguing with her.

A friend of the young woman’s took issue, however, smashing his own glass over the victim’s head.

The cops showed up, sent the victim to hospital and questioned the attacker. KOH SANTEPHEAP
