Phnom Penh: A group were attacked at 8 pm on November 8, 2020, along the concrete road next to the canal under the Stung Meanchey flyover in Sangkat Stung Meanchey 2, Khan Meanchey, Phnom Penh, leaving a man seriously injured.
Prior to the incident, Suon Savuth, 20, along with two or three other friends and the seriously injured victim were sitting near the mouth of the Stung Meanchey canal.
