Party pre-gaming with machetes ends badly

While things on the dance floor can quickly get heated, traveling to the party can also be dangerous.

One man, 19, found this out as he rode solo on his moto to a pagoda party in Pursat on Thursday night. On a dark, lonely road, three men, aged 19, 20 and 30, blocked the man’s way before unleashing machetes and wooden sticks on him.
