PHUKET: Police are searching for a robber who stabbed a 77-year-old man in the hand with a screwdriver as he stole a necklace worth over B100,000 and a “first edition” amulet deemed “priceless” early this morning (Jan 13).

 

Capt Rachan Panwai of the Phuket City Police was called to the scene, a small side street near the fresh market on Ong Sim Phai Rd, at 7:30am.

 

Officers arrived to find Phuket native Sathit Pongthanaphanit, 77, standing beside his grey Toyota sedan, which still had both front doors open. Mr Sathit was still bleeding from his left hand and had a long scratch on his neck.

Don't wear any jewellery, watch etc. Dress like a pauper (or a Brit) and you won't be targeted.

Or smile and show your gold teeth.

100,000 baht price makes around 5 baht weight, around 75g. Height of stupidity.

A priceless amulet means he wouldn't sell for any price, not that it was of any intrinsic value. I

Either way, stoooooooooooooooopid.

Just out of curiosity, what, exactly, would make an amulet priceless? I mean, dude had it stolen by a guy with a screwdriver.

Sentimental value perhaps.
