There’s no use crying, fighting over spilt beer

A drunken argument over spilled beer led two intoxicated youngsters to take out their anger on a local farmer in Kandal province’s Ang Snuol district yesterday.

One of the two attackers knocked over the farmer’s drink, shattering the glass. After the 22-year-old farmer took offence, the two suspects allegedly beat him senseless, stabbing him in the head with their moto key, police said.

The attackers made a quick getaway, while the victim was admitted to hospital with serious injuries. KOH SANTEPHEAP
