Poipet gambler knifed in back over $100 debt

An unpaid debt saw a man brutally attacked in Banteay Meanchey’s Poipet town on Saturday.

Police said the man was sitting in a garden outside of a casino when two men allegedly approached him from behind and attacked him with a knife, leaving serious wounds on his head and back.

Casino security guards saw the attack and managed to chase the two men down as they tried to flee, turning them over to police.

The victim later told cops that he had gambled away $100 of the suspects’ money and hadn’t been able to repay them.
