Cops in the capital are hunting a contender for Phnom Penh’s worst roommate, following a violent assault and motorbike-burning incident in Por Sen Chey district on Monday evening.
After neighbours intervened in an argument, the 21-year-old air-conditioner repairman apparently left for a drink. Upon returning, he punched his housemate in the face, prompting him to lock himself in his room to avoid further attack.
When the beaten man refused to open his door, the assailant dragged his motorbike outside and set it ablaze, before hotfooting it into the night. KOH SANTEPHEAP
