Turkish Expat Mehmet Tekoglu (owner of MK City Hotel) Arrested For Violent Crimes a 3rd Time in Sihanoukville, Cambodia

16 March 2017 at 2pm, Sihanoukville.
42yo Turkish national, Mehmet Tekoglu, manager of MK City Guest House, was arrested for the attempted murder of Ozturk, a 38yo Turkish man, also doing business in Sihanoukville. Tekoglu allegedly attacked the victim by ramming his motorbike to make him crash, and then beating him with a bamboo pole. Local people intervened and the police were called. The event happened at Village 4, Sangkat 4, Sihanoukville.
The alleged attacker had a history of violence, and in 2013 he was sentenced to one year in jail for the assault of an Israeli man.

Moreover, this is not the first dispute between Ozturk and Tekoglu , who are involved in rival ferry boat companies. Tekoglu is extremely well known to Cambodian police for his part in Sihanoukville's violence between "mafia" factions. From 14 months ago :

“He has a bad history,” Has Samoeun, chief of the provincial military police’s information and security bureau, said on Wednesday after positively identifying Mr. Tekoglu.

“He has been involved in a shooting case and other violence, and he is the one who tried to escape from the court with handcuffs on,” he said.

In March, amid a spate of violent crimes in Sihanoukville involving foreign factions that police characterized as “mafia,” Mr. Tekoglu was charged with intentional violence for stabbing an Israeli man. Police said the stabbing was an act of retaliation by Mr. Tekoglu, who had been targeted in a failed drive-by that saw a Cambodian bystander shot in the leg.

After he was charged at the Preah Sihanouk Provincial Court, according to police, Mr. Tekoglu escaped from the courthouse when given permission to go to the bathroom, scaling a fence surrounding the building while in handcuffs and fleeing into a nearby wooded area.

Police said they recaptured him about 300 meters away and sent him to prison. He was later convicted and served several months behind bars, according to Mr. Samoeun.

Memory refresher.
Two years ago. Previous violence in Sihanoukville involving Tekoglu, also involved Russians:

This photo from 2015 looks like a match, where Tekoglu was assumed to be Russian when first arrested by Cambodian police.

If I am ever flanked by the competent authorities for having been a complete ass hat, I'd be the first to ask for deportation.

He obviously likes the taste of prison food. So if they are ferry company rivals, is he with Borat/SFC, or against?

Not sure if this is still up-to-date, but from January 2016:
Shortly after his release late last year, Mr. Tekoglu, who runs SeaCambodia, a luxury tour boat company in Sihanoukville, visited the Cambodia Daily office in Phnom Penh and said that he wanted the newspaper to publish the “real story”—that he had been falsely inculpated in the stabbing and targeted in the drive-by as a result of an ongoing dispute with rival Turkish businessmen Bora Ozturk and Sakip Capal, who run the Koh Rong Dive Center and its ferry service.

They are most definitely not friends.

He was targeted by 'Russians' actually. I'm surprised he's still alive TBH.

Yes, the Russians and the Turks get confused in the reporting. Turks are working for the Russians and sometimes they (media) mix them up.
Do you have coherent summary of who hates who ? And who owns what ?
Just wondering what the latest violence means.
