One student fights for his right to party

One student fights for his right to party

A smug university student got schooled yesterday. The 26-year-old was drinking with friends at his home in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district when his neighbour came by and offered the student $4 to join the party.

He received beer along with plenty of attitude; the ungracious host told his guest, “no one invited you, but you came”.

The neighbour drank his beer quietly and left. After the party, the wallflower returned to take his revenge using a meat cleaver. Police intervened when they heard the victim’s screams.

The victim was hospitalised and the suspect was arrested. Nokorwat
