A Chinese teacher was whacked on the nose with a golf club as an argument with a Grab taxi driver turned violent in Pak Kret, Bangkok, yesterday. 

 

Two Chinese men - Yew, 30, a Chinese language teacher in Bangkok, and Lee 23 his friend - had called the white car using the Grab application. They were on their way to apply for a course at a Bangkok university. 

 

Pak Kret police arrived in Soi Wat Salak Neua where they found Yew with an injury to his nose. 

 

His friend Lee told officers in Thai: "When the car arrived Yew opened the front passenger door but was told very impolitely to sit in the back. The driver was fierce.

 

"There was then a disagreement about where to place a water bottle and a bad atmosphere developed".

 

He said that Yew spoke some Thai and the driver reacted angrily saying: "Why are you speaking so loudly?".

 

The driver then aborted the journey and told them to get out of the car. 

 

As Yew did he slammed the door which enraged the Grab driver who went and got a golf club out of the boot of the car and hit him. 

 

Only the intervention of a military man nearby succeeded in calming the situation. 

 

The Chinese formally pressed charges at the Pak Kret police station after this. 

 

Sanook said police know the identity of the driver and are now looking for him.

 

Thaivisa notes that the incident will come as a blow to people who believe that many Bangkok taxi drivers are sinners and that Grab drivers are mostly saints.

Grab fires driver over alleged passenger assault

By The Nation

 

Grab Thailand announced Friday it had fired one of its drivers who allegedly assaulted a Chinese passenger on a roadside in Nonthaburi the day before.

 

Grab said it had received a complaint against the driver and terminated his contract.

 

The company apologised for the incident and said the driver’s alleged behaviour was unacceptable and violated its rules.

 

Grab said it gives priority to passenger safety and carries insurance for them, which will cover the medical costs for the passenger allegedly injured in this case.

 

Chinese nationals Su Sihanh, 30, and Li Mengkui, 23, told police the driver had dumped them at kerbside in Nonthaburi’s Pak Kret district and then left his vehicle to punch Su in the face.

 

A passing military officer witnessed the incident and summoned police to the scene.

 

The driver and passengers had allegedly rowed, first over one man’s attempt to sit in the front seat and then over the disposition of a water bottle.
