PHUKET: -- Two teenagers who confessed to attacking a British tourist in Krabi on Monday have claimed that they “misunderstood” the foreigner’s actions and thought he was insulting them.

The victim, Daniel Cole, 21, has already undergone surgery for the cut wounds to his temple, chest, right shoulder and right arm and is recovering at Bangkok Hospital Phuket.

Anusorn Kullak, 18, and his accomplice, 17, who cannot be named for legal reasons, are being held at Krabi Prison.

“They said Mr Cole had insulted them, so the 17-year-old stabbed him with a 15-inch Sparta knife, while Mr Anusorn used a shoe to beat him,” Ao Nang officer Lt Col Niwat Pimket told the Phuket Gazette.

The men ran off after the attack, and then people at a nearby dive shop called the police and rescue workers, he explained.

The British woman, April Clifton, 21, who was walking with Mr Cole was not attacked. The pair were arrested about four hours after the incident.

Today, Mr Cole explained to police that he was still shocked by the attack. However, he would like to return to his travels in Krabi as soon as the hospital discharges him.

I live in Ao-nang and I've seen it get steadily worse over the last 10yrs,Not surprised these B--t--ds make up a story that they were insulted, it will sure help them if they go to court, who do you think the Thai judges will believe? There is no justice for Farangs in Thailand.

The bad Thai's who are only a small minority, are starting to realise that it's now open season on Farangs, they know the Thai authorities will Always side with them, and protect them, what do you think the Thai authorities would do to a Farang who in self defence, where to hit a Thai.

Do you think the punishment would be the same?

Maybe he did something to provoke the attack ?

A friend of mine drove past them minutes before the attack.she told me, that they were arm in arm walking romantically.He sure was not drunk,so why pick a fight against 7 people ?

Motive who knows....didn't want money...show off to the girls maybe....

Many times this has happened to me and my friends.I was kicked off my bike 5 months ago by 2 kids on bikes,just outside my home.

Having a handy bat next to my door helped allot.with them both running off, Leaving the bike behind.They told police Accident..lol

We even went out ,on night rides trying to lure them into attacking me.so we could catch them.3/4 local elder Thais following in the distance off course...

I would like to praise the local police ,for all there recent efforts .Well done.

little too late, but better than never.
