Pattaya: Foreigner "mercilessly" attacked with repeated kicks to the face in Walking Street

Siam Chon News reported what they said was a very bad attack on a foreigner that would tarnish the image of Pattaya as it begins its recovery from the pandemic.

 

At 2 am today a 24 year old Chilean national called Salvatore C. reported to Pol Capt Phuttarak Sornkhamhan that he had been attacked by a motorcycle taxi rider in Walking Street.

In tears and speaking through an interpreter the victim who was covered in blood said that he had left a club at closing time and wanted to continue partying in Soi Bua Khao. 

 

But he was set upon and another motorcyle taxi rider brought him to the police station. 

 

He was treated at the station by Sawang Boriboon foundation medics before being taken to hospital. 

 

Police went to the scene of the attack and found bloodstains.

CCTV footage showed a tall and well built motorcyle taxi rider in a jacket sitting with the victim.

 

He then got up and slapped the victim in the face twice knocking him over. 

 

What Siam Chon News described as a merciless attack then continued with the "win" (taxi rider) kicking the victim in the face multiple times. 

 

The victim did not fight back at all.

Police are trying to find the assailant.

 

The media said this was terrible for the image of Pattaya with the government trying to promote tourism post pandemic.

A contingent of Pattaya police led by station chief Pol Col Phisit Phoonsap arrested the motorcycle taxi rider responsible for attacking a Chilean man earlier this morning.

 

Salvatore C., 24, was left bloodied with a broken nose after the Walking Street assault at 2 am.

 

Amorn or "Jiap" Bunmee (who had changed his surname) was arrested at his house in Soi Bon Kai at 10 am and taken to the police station.

 

Taken into evidence were a "win" (motorcycle taxi rider) jacket and his clothes. 

 

The victim, who had earlier been taken to hospital, was being sought to do some much needed identification in the form of pointing, reported Pattaya Update News. 

 

The motive for the attack is still being investigated.

Shouldn't be hard, there aren't many win drivers brave enough to fight alone.

'Police went to the scene of the attack and found bloodstains.' I bet they'll match the victim's.

Stop and check all those wearing orange jackets with numbers on them, oops! that means leaving the nice clean air conditioned office, and not too many win riders will pass through the building to be checked.

Good for the second win rider, but why did he have to be taken to the police station.

The mayor wants Pattaya to be another Miami, well time he told the Pattaya police to work the same way a Miami police, in an incident like this in Miami the police would come running to you.
