‘Gangsters’ accused of sign-of-the-times crime
Police in Battambang’s Banan district arrested five “gangsters” accused of destroying public property during a fight on Monday. One of the gangsters said he and his posse were walking along a road, when a rival gang of five approached them and instigated a fight. In the ensuing fracas, three public street signs were damaged, and the gangsters fled the scene. Police managed to detain five of them, and are investigating the case to see how much each hoodlum has to pay to repair the state’s property.

Masked bandits steal student’s mobile phones
Two students were robbed at knifepoint by two masked thieves in Stung Treng town this week. One of the victims said that as they were riding their bicycles to school, the two men approached them and threatened to kill them if they didn’t hand over what they had in their pockets. The students handed over two mobile phones and a necklace. Police have concluded that the suspects are classmates of the victims because they seemed to “know everything about the victims”.

Toad repast proves deadly for gourmet
A 39-year-old man died in Kampong Cham’s Oraing Ov district on Monday after reportedly eating a poisonous frog. The victim’s family said that the victim was drinking wine with his “one friend”, who did not eat any frog meat. Once the meal was finished, the victim returned home and “looked as he usually does”, but he failed to wake up once he fell asleep. Police said the victim’s death “is not a crime”.

Confession gained in sex assault case
A 20-year-old man was arrested by military police in Phnom Penh on Monday after raping a woman three times because she didn’t love him. The victim, a garment worker, had returned home after work to sleep, when the suspect pounced and raped her. The suspect told police that he loved the victim, but the feeling wasn’t mutual, so he decided the only way to be with her was to rape her. The victim told her mother, who filed a complaint.
