Violent assault: always a drink away for some

Violent assault: always a drink away for some

It took just one heavy drinking session for a man with a shady past to return to his old ways in Kampong Cham’s Prey Chhor district on Sunday.

The 35-year-old, who spent time in prison last year for assault, got drunk with friends and ended up dropping cigarette ash into someone else’s food and wine.

Not surprisingly, an argument ensued, resulting in the man storming from the scene to grab a machete.

Villagers were able to intervene before the man could catch his target and police soon arrived to make an arrest. Kampuchea Thmey
