Robber who held up 7-Eleven was starving after eating plain rice for seven days

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.

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 ?

Could have/should have just went to the nearest temple  they have more food than they know what to do with every single morning.

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.

If he was eating rice for 7 days he wasn't starving really. Rice is good source of what u need isn't it.
