An out of work man in Nakorn Sawan said he held up a 7-Eleven store earlier in the week because he was hungry.

 

Ritthiporn Pinthong, 22, had only eaten plain rice for the last seven days, he told the cops. 

 

On Tuesday he went into the store in Muang district with a shirt over his head armed with a cleaver and demanded cash from two terrorized staffers. He got 4,500 baht. 

 

Then he went and paid his rent, water and electric bills......and bought some food.

 

Using CCTV the police soon traced him to his rented room two kilometers away. He had only 300 baht left when the law arrived.

 

He said he had lost his job and his mum wouldn't bail him out and seeing as the rent was due and he'd had nothing with his rice for a full week he decided to rob the store. 

 

He has been charged with armed robbery at night and detained.

Another classic from the Thai book of excuses.

Hardly a reason to terrify 2 young workers with a meat cleaver though.

Every cloud has a silver lining:

Once in prison I'm sure he will have a slightly different diet - brown rice.

True, but you know if you look at reality TV from the US, UK or Netherlands they always also have dumb funny excuses. Not a Thai thing. 

 

You are right its no reason to terrify workers with a meat cleaver and he should be send to jail.

Is there a harsher sentence if you rob at night ?

Must be, because if it happened during the daytime it would be a 'lighter' sentence.

Poor lad, made a wrong choice under pressure to pay bills (which at least he did)..... being skint, jobless and hungry with the prospect of losing his roof, throwing him in the nick isn’t going to solve any of these issues that face society

will be getting board and 3 square meals a day,no worries.

They wouldn't pay his bills though, being possibly made homeless must have just added to his worries. I think it is rather sad, he didn't hurt anybody and probably wouldn't have.
