Violent (and cheap) johns pistol-whip prostitute

A cop and a car dealer were hauled in for questioning after getting violent with a working girl on Tuesday night.

Police said the drunken duo had approached a prostitute on the notorious stroll around the capital’s Wat Phnom only to be rejected when she remembered one of them as a customer who had failed to pay.

Enraged, one of the two men pulled a pistol and smacked her in the face.

Luckily, she suffered only minor injuries, while the two assailants were arrested and had the gun and their motorbike confiscated.
