Three Chinese nationals attacked in Sihanoukville

The Preah Sihanouk provincial police are set to send three men to court after they were arrested on Saturday for attacking three Chinese nationals, seriously injuring them, in two separate incidents.

According to police reports, the suspects last Tuesday night attacked one of the victims in Mittapheap district’s commune 3 with swords and sticks before fleeing the scene on two motorbikes.

They attacked two other Chinese nationals in the district’s commune 4 the next day.

Kol Phally, the deputy provincial police chief in charge of serious crimes, said on Monday that the trio intended to kill the victims for allegedly sexually abusing their girlfriends.
