Police in Kratie province nabbed two men on July 22 in connection with an armed robbery that led to the killing of Khin Sokny, 20, on July 20 in Changkrang commune. Police identified the suspects as Chea Von, 55, and Yim Kha-Oun, 39, both of whom reside in Bos Leav commune. After the arrest, police confiscated an AK-47 rifle with 26 bullets and two red motorcycles from the suspects.

A Kampong Cham commune chief was telling the mother of a local troublemaker to advise her son not to make any more trouble in the village when he was unexpectedly stabbed in the waist by said troublemaker on Thursday. Police said the troublemaker, An Vuthy, 21, fled the scene after seriously injuring Mear Chrei Commune Chief Chhay Phon, who claimed that the perpetrator had committed similar acts several times.

While running after his wife to kiss her, a man was axed twice in the head by his brother-in-law, who mistakenly thought that his sister was being attacked by the man. The incident occurred Wednesday in Pursat's Phnum Kravanh district. Duk Chrun, 42, was told by his cronies that they would give him from US$1.25 to $2.50 if he exchanged kisses with his shy wife in order to entertain them. He was injured by his brother-in-law, Khem Neth, who thought that the victim was chasing his sister in an attempt to harm her. The perpetrator has been sent to Pursat provincial court to stand trial.

A Banteay Meanchey provincial council member was chopped to death by a group of spoiled Samurai Vietnamese teenagers Friday after he told the perpetrators, who were drinking near him at a restaurant in the province's Preah Punlear commune, not to "chitchat too noisily". Police identified the victim as Top Sareoun, 63, who was also a soldier. Police said they nabbed the three suspects on Saturday as they were cutting their long hair to disguise their identities.

An 18-year-old woman died Wednesday at a private hospital in Phnom Penh after drinking poison the day before. The dead girl was identified as Sok Nary, who lived in Kampong Chhnang's Svay Chrum commune. Police said the girl decided to commit suicide after she was repeatedly criticised by her parents for going out too much and ignoring her housework.
