CALL OF NATURE LEADS TO ASSAULT ATTEMPT
A 43-year-old man has been accused of attempting to sexually assault a woman while she was urinating outdoors. The assault allegedly occurred last Tuesday in Battambang province when the woman’s husband was away. The woman said she was urinating behind her house when she felt the accused man, who she said was a drunkard, put his arm suggestively on her shoulder. Villagers rushed to her help, however, before the situation grew more dire. The man allegedly confessed to the accusations, telling police that he had loved the woman for a long period of time.
