Poipet man starts 2015 with major headache

A Poipet man woke up with a headache on New Year’s Day, but not for the usual reasons. Police said the man allegedly took advantage of a local resident’s absence on New Year’s Eve to try and rob him of his belongings.

Borrowing a few tools, the suspect went to the man’s house and set to breaking in, but was too slow. The local came home and shouted for help. His neighbours obliged, and the neighbourhood celebrated the holiday with a good old-fashioned thief-beating. Police soon came and rescued the suspect and sent him to court. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
