Man Tried Killing Neighbor by Gas Explosion and Knife-Point Threatening

It is not as easy as you might think.
Battambang, Cambodia News: On October 14, 2018, at 01:30 pm, a 29-year-old man, Chamroeun Chengla, was detained after first trying to burn down the neighbor's house by exploding a bottle of gas, and then threatening to kill the victim with a knife, at Slar Ket village, Battambang city.

A neighbors' dispute got out of hand when the suspect fabricated a homemade bomb from a small gas canister surrounded by a firecracker, to throw into the victim's house. But, the victim, Mao Vanny, saw the fire at her house and threw some water on it, putting it out. After that, the angry suspect took out a knife and threatened to stab the victim to death.

Fortunately, the suspect was arrested and taken into custody before he could cause any damage. He remains detained while his case is being prepared for court.
