Man Goes Berserk and Attacks Tuktuk After He Says He Was Ripped Off by Driver

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Cleaned up the last couple of posts as they've degenerated into trading insults and turning this topic into a racism discussion. No need for that on this topic. Please keep it civil going forward and on topic.

If he paid the $3 and then went to get the knife from his home like he claims, why did the driver stick around to wait for the gentleman to bring the big knife and smash his window? You’d think the driver would be in a hurry to leave.

I’m not sure if we have the correct order of events. What came first? A) The pushing, B) The broken window C) The knife

If he had a gun in his home would he bring that out instead to shoot the driver over a $1 overcharge? What is the nationality of the perp? Is he an American war veteran with mental health problems?

Something tells me this didn’t happen:

Driver: Three dollars please
Perp: That is one dollar more than I normally pay
Driver: You are a black dog
Perp: Here take three dollars and wait while I get my knife
Driver: OK

Apparently he threw the driver's shoes into a nearby bush or something so the driver had to go find them.

At a guess, I'd say that there is more to this story.
But I'm not into gossip and speculation. of course. 8-)
