Samaritans set back by sword-swinging suspect

Samaritans set back by sword-swinging suspect

A failed motorbike robbery in Poipet on Saturday night proved the old adage that no good deed goes unpunished. When a man left a club at about midnight, two men – one wielding a samurai sword – stopped him, ordering him off his bike, police said.

An ad hoc posse that quickly materialised attempted to hold the men for police, but three of the do-gooders were seriously injured when the sword came into play. The injured men were hospitalised, and the two suspects were arrested. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
