PHUKET:-- Police have yet to make any progress in arresting a foreign man for stabbing a British national in Phuket earlier this month – with the victim and his girlfriend both not answering police calls or assisting the police in any other way, The Phuket News has been told.
 

Neil Goodwin, a 35-year-old expat resident of Rawai, was stabbed in the car park at the We Cafe restaurnat on Chao Fa West Rd on the evening of May 1 after arriving at the venue with his girlfriend, Sudarat Harnma.

 

Mr Goodwin was rushed to hospital before police arrived. He had been stabbed twice: once in the left shoulder and once in the left side of the body.

If the police really want to talk to the guy, why don't they rock up to the hospital seeing as they know he's still there?

“We have a problem. The British victim has not answered any calls by police for the past 15 days,” Col Nikorn said.
 
That's because he's probably not in Thailand anymore. Very smart not to alert immigration.

We ought to come up with term to replace "girlfriend" in episodes such as these. Girl + enemy... maybe girlemy? Ideas anyone?

Regarding this specific instance, maybe it's just "how they roll"

yes he has retired to Thailand at 35

 

is it any wonder they don't want the police involved 

 

I could have a very good educated guess

probably a couple of boiler room phone monkeys arguing over some girl, or maybe not, who knows and who really cares? bib don't seem to bothered, just hanging in there hoping there's a payment coming 😉

 

“Before the attack, there was a dispute over Ms Sudarat as she has two boyfriends at the same time,” Col Nikorn said.

“Just before the stabbing took place, Ms Sudarat’s other boyfriend made arrangements with Mr Goodwin through LINE application to meet at We Cafe,” the police chief explained.

“As Mr Goodwin and Ms Sudarat parked up and got out of their car, Mr Goodwin was attacked.”
