Australian STEVE MORRISH Arrested in Phnom Penh for Breaking Japanese Man's Nose in Drunken Street Fight

Post by Borum-Ex frm TOForum » Sat Feb 03, 2018 9:01 am

Phnom Penh: Australian expat Steve Morrish was arrested in Phnom Penh last night for a street fight in the city's girly bar area,
Loco Bar on Street 130, after breaking a Japanese tourists nose. The Japanese man, the victim, was also taken into custody. He has been identified as Hiroshi Isoda.

Cambodian authorities took both Steven Morrish and Hiroshi Isoda to the police station in Daun Penh district for questioning and legal action at 01:30 am local time on the morning of February 3, 2018, in Pha Kandal I, Khan Daun Penh, Phnom Penh.

According to local news, people at the scene said they saw a Japanese man drunk and intoxicated and having a heated dispute with the Australian and security, who was also at the scene and stopped the fighting. They concluded that Steve Morrish from Australia used violence against the Japanese man, breaking his nose, leaving him unconscious for a bit. They quickly gave medical assistance to the Japanese victim.

After the incident, the police detained the Australian man Steve Morrish and the Japanese man Hiroshi Isoda over the street fight, and Mr Morrish is likely being charged with "intentional violence."

"Steve Morrish is a former Victorian copper with a shaved head. Ruth Golder is a former missionary from Queensland with a diamante embedded in a front tooth. Steve Morrish and Ruth Golder don't know each other. They move in different circles. He plays footy, she goes to church. But they have a few things in common."

All bald-headed Australian thugs look alike to me, but I must say, this looks like Steve Morrish.

Did the beat down of the Japanese guy happen on Street 136? I see Street 136 in the final shot of the video.

Edit: the commentator says 130 in Khmer and other articles say the fight happened in front of Loco Bar on Street 130
