Trouble followed man home after bike backfire

Trouble followed man home after bike backfire

Having a backfiring motorbike backfired on a man and his teenage nephew in Chroy Changvar district on Saturday night when a group of 10 drinking beer on the sidewalk took offence at the noise.

The liquored-up louts cursed the two riders and an argument ensued, which escalated into an attempt at mob violence.

The man and his 17-year-old nephew fled home, but the angry group followed them to his door. He ran inside and grabbed his gun, shooting once in the air.

The warning shot scattered the mob but the owner was arrested for having an unlicensed weapon, while the revenge-happy crew is being sought by police.
