Video: Pensioners in custody after minor argument leads to death of security guard in Bangkok

A pointless argument led to the death of a thirty seven year old  security guard in Samut Prakan yesterday morning.

 

A couple aged 70 and 73 who are motorcycle taxi riders are in police custody charged with murder.

 

Sanook reported that Bang Kaew police attended the scene where Saphaporn was lying in a pool of blood with a single chest wound. He was dead.

 

Giving evidence was 70 year old Phayao and her husband Than, 73.

 

Phayao said her husband had called her after having a minor accident with a car as he wanted her to bring his registration papers. 

 

She parked her motorcycle in front of a busy parking lot angering the guard who attacked her.

 

A melee ensued in which a nine month old baby was slapped, said the media.

 

The guard would not stop. A helmet was used as a weapon and Phayao said she acted in self defence after she got a fruit paring knife from her bag.

 

A video of the assaults caught on mobile phone were blurred and unclear. The guard died away from the scene of the initial confrontation.

 

The lady who was involved in the original scrape said it all should have been sorted amicably, instead it blew up into a pointless argument in which a young man lost his life.

I wonder if that is the fatal stabbing at 34 seconds ? His back is turned and he is clearly walking away, it would seem to make the self-defence case a challenge.

Looks like they have the whole thing on video, so should be an open & shut case. 

 

What a waste, one dead and probably two OAPs spending their final years in prison away from kids and grandkids.

Bringing a knife to a helmet fight, no way will be a self defense case two against one the guard, pity that people in their 70's will have to end their life in prison...

That blurry image in the OP sure as sh*t looks to me like a motorbike taxi mob ganging up on a security guard trying to do his job.

 

Not seeing much in the way of 'self defense' at all.

For a 73 year old, he swings a pretty mean helmet

It always surprises and saddens me how swift Thais are in turning a minor incident into one involving violence. The idea of discussing anything rationally just doesn't seem to happen.

The only way to deal with a conflict in Thailand is to "Wai and Walk Away". Any other method will likely lead to violence.

The knife and also the helmet were both used by the assailants.

By me not being typically selfish and blocking the parking lot, but I was  too stupid and don't like being told what to do and now I can spend the rest of my life locked up, congratulations luv!
