Neighbourly concern no concern of these gangs

Five young capital goons held the spotlight on Wednesday in Tuol Kork district when they attacked another gang, then beat up villagers trying to stop the ruckus.

Parked in the road, the crew lobbed insults and then fists at a set of four passing teens. Two neighbours tried calming tensions but got whacked along with the rest.

Cops were called but when they arrived the victims’ only request was to pass word of the wicked deeds on to the parents of the aggressors.

Police did just that after taking them down to headquarters.
