Sihanoukville gang fight leaves one dead, nine arrested

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Sat Dec 23, 2017 11:00 am

22 December 2017
SIHANOUKVILLE - Nine young men, all under the age of 20, were apprehended by Sihanoukville police on 20 and 21 December in connection with the death of a 19 year old man on 19 December.
The nine belong to two different gangs who were fighting when the man was killed with a large knife. A pistol was also recovered at the time of the arrest, and five other youths are still being sought by police.

Although it was not the murder weapon in this case, a big question is, where are punks like these getting hold of firearms ?

When the suspects were detained, the police forces seized a knife as the suspected the murder weapon, a short gun, and three motorbikes, Honda Dreammax and a brand MSX.
