PHUKET: Thalang Police have confirmed that four official charges will be issued to the man who was involved in a dramatic hostage situation in Srisoonthorn on Wednesday evening.

 

Prasit ‘Beer’ Thepthong, 33, had refused to be searched by police officers and then pulled out a handgun and fled to a motorbike repair shop at Khao Lan - Bang Jo Rd (Route 4015) in Moo 4, Srisoonthorn.

 

Once inside, he held Ms Suthasinee Thummakorn, 54, and Mr Jaroon Tudamriang, 51, as hostages while police waited outside.
