Mango madness leads a son to mayhem

Mango madness leads a son to mayhem

A collision of mango philosophies ended in violence between father and son on Wednesday in Kandal’s Ksach Kandal district.

Police said the dispute began when the son insisted on taking a mango from the family tree.

The father rejected the request, saying the mangos were yet too small and should be allowed to grow more before being picked.

Perhaps unsurprisingly to Blotter fans, that was enough provocation for the suspect to throw rocks at the older man, busting him open before police arrived to drag him away, begging for his father’s forgiveness as he went.
