Dash cam footage from a Bangkok cab showed an altercation between a man on a Kawasaki KSR and a 53 year old taxi driver. 

 

The footage - posted on "Hear Khap Rot" stemmed from a problem on the local road next to the Phrapradaeng expressway involving the taxi cutting in front of the motorcyclist. 

 

The motorcyclist can be seen early in the seven minute clip drawing over to the left presumably to get a knife out to confront the driver, reported Thai Rath.

 

The rider than taps on the window and slows in front of the cab and is knocked off. 

 

Out of camera shot he attempted to stab the driver but the blow did not pierce the skin. 

 

For some reason the driver gets out of the cab and the foul mouthed confrontation continues in which the driver is knocked to the tarmac. There is blood on the roadway.

 

A crowd of people come to help. 

 

The assailant left the scene at the end of the clip said the media who contacted the Samae Dam police for comment. 

 

Pol Capt Rerngsak Petchkhiaw, in charge of the case, said that after the victim went to hospital he reported the matter to police. He was named as Kitipong Markjongdee,53. 

 

It all happened on the evening of August 14th.

 

Capt Rerngsak said that only a rolled up wad of 20 baht notes in a bag prevented the knife entering the driver's body making the incident even worse. 

 

The bike had no license plate but the police captain said that they hope to have the rider in custody soon. 

 

The fact that he was armed with a knife showed malice aforethought and the lack of plates indicated that he may have been involved in serious incidents before. 

 

More about this as we hear of it.

Looks like the blood was when the taxi driver hit his head on the kerb after he was punched.

Exactly. He's lucky to be alive. I know several who died when slipping on a wet bathroom floor.

Help? Did I miss something?

I guess I missed the same. The only "help" shown on the news appeared to be a guy on a mc, that looked to be a friend of the 'knife man'.
