Chivalry wasn’t dead, but a bit misplaced yesterday when a couple of 17-year-olds chucked rocks at someone they thought had hurt a female acquaintance.

The victim said he was outside his Por Sen Chey district dorm when two drove by and flung the rock, which crash into a nearby moto.

The victim, for his part, denied this, saying he had no idea who the other men were, leaving them to explain their unorthodox brand of gallantry to police.
