PHUKET: An incident on the south side of Phuket Town that saw an emotionally unstable man roaming around in front of a complex of rowhouses with a machete and holding a knife to his own throat ended safely yesterday (Jan 12) after the man’s friend managed to calm the man down.


Police were called to the Hor Khiew complex of single-level rowhouses on Soi 31 Sakdidet Rd at about 2:30pm after local residents reported the man roaming around with the knives, saying they feared for their safety and for the safety of the man himself.


Officers led by Lt Gen Boonchai Jareonhatthakit, joined by investigator Lt Peerasit Noopayan and more than 20 officers, arrived to see the man walking around in front of the rowhouses holding a Sparta blade in one hand and a kitchen knife in the other.
