Slumbering man gets a sharp wake-up call

A 35-year-old was rudely woken in Kampot town on Saturday by a seemingly random axe attack.

According to police, the man was sleeping in a hammock in his unlocked home when the assailant slipped in and gave him two swift chops to the back, leaving him seriously injured.

Given that it was dark in the house and that the assailant attacked from behind, the victim had no way to identify him, and police were just as baffled as to the attacker’s motive as the victim was. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
