‘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.

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.
