To intervene or not? Man dies after trying to break up quarrel

A man who tried to intervene in an argument between a man and his girlfriend was stabbed to death in Bangkok last night.

 

Now the couple have disappeared as police try to find them. 

 

Violence erupted near the end of Petchaburi Road Soi 22 in Bangkok around 9.30 pm. A man was arguing with the female owner of a spicy salad (yam) stall next to a mobile phone shop. 

 

The man was Manit, 39, and the woman was his Vietnamese girlfriend called An. 

 

Nui, 28, said he had finished work and gone to see his friend at the mobile shop. A group of five people were drinking outside the shop that is next to the yam stall. 

 

Manit arrived and there was trouble but it subsided. However it flared up again and several of the drinkers in the group tried to intervene. 

 

Manit picked up an eight inch knife and went for all of them. Khajornjit, 37, didn't flee in time and was stabbed twice in the side and twice in the chest. 

 

The knife was found at the end of the soi. Manit disappeared on a motorcycle and his girlfriend An is missing too. 

 

Nui said that the man with the knife had yelled: "Don't interfere - it's between me and her". 

 

Khajornjit did interfere and paid with his life. Police and rescue services found him barely alive at the scene and he later succumbed in Rathchawithi Hospital.

For me, if i see two thais quarreling i let it be, not my place to intervene specially when not knowing who's the aggressor and who's the other guy...

Funny thing is, most weapons training for cvilians emphasizes that you generally NOT intervene in even violent disputes if you yourself are carrying a weapon.

Sad to say, it really is best here to keep right out of any form of aggravation whatsoever, regardless of who is involved. Doing the right thing is highly likely to see you hurt or worse.

Totally agree and I have seen fights here on a few occasions and have been tempted to intervene, especially where the numbers are not even, but then recall the number of times I have seen completely innocent bystanders being set upon just because they thought they might be able to help.

 

There is no rhyme nor reason to some of these quarrels and fights, so better to stay away completely or perhaps risk losing one's life.

I have been living here for twenty years and would never intervene  it always ends badly especially if you're a farang.

What if it's between your wife and her son you will stand by and watch?Never is a big word when misused.
