No uniform, no charm for drunken policeman

An off-duty policeman in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district was given a thorough roughing-up after arguably engaging in some conduct unbecoming of an officer.

According to police, the cop had drunkenly propositioned a young woman outside a nightclub. She rebuffed him, and a scuffle ensued.

The woman’s friends and guards from the club intervened and calmed both sides down, but the moment the man stepped off of the club’s premises, the same friends and guards allegedly proceeded to beat him badly. Military police intervened and the man was hospitalised, but the suspects were not arrested. NOKORWAT
