Man questioned after running away with lover
A 20-year-old man was arrested in Kratie province on Friday after being accused of kidnapping a woman and taking her to Mondulkiri province. Her parents filed a complaint to provincial police after they discovered her living with the man for more than a week. The suspect denied the allegations, claiming the pair had been “in love” for years, but her parents had denied their love. He told police that he and the girl decided to pack up and live in Mondulkiri because the parents rejected his marriage request.
