Teen’s movie night takes a dramatic, stabby turn

An 18-year-old had his plans for a quiet night in with a movie turn unpleasantly dramatic on July 13 in Oddar Meanchey province.

As he returned from the bootleg DVD shop, a 23-year-old from his village appeared in front of him brandishing a knife and asked the youngster if he wanted to make a friend or an enemy.

Before the 18-year-old even had the chance to reply, the man slashed him, forcing the youth to flee, while the suspect slipped away.
