Police hunt thugs who brutally attacked British family in Hua Hin

HUA HIN:-- Police have asked for help in identifying two youths involved in a serious assault on a family of British tourists.

A video clip from CCTV from a camera at the entrance to Soi Bintabaht in front of Wat Hua Hin captures a serious argument between a British tourist family of three people - a mum, dad and their child - who were in the area to celebrate Songkran on the evening of April 13th.

The family encounter a group of youths and an argument develops into a serious assault where the three foreigners are unable to defend themselves and were grievously injured.

In the clip, the family can be seen getting into an argument with the attackers. A man appears to strike the foreign woman before other, presumably Thai men, start attacking the two other foreign men. All three foreigners are knocked to the floor.

The attack only stops when the three foreigners are unconscious but not before one Thai man lands a brutal volley to the face of the woman as she tries to get up in what is a truly shocking display of violence.

Hua Hin police are sharing the video footage to help arrest those responsible.

Police have two of the attackers in custody and are trying to find two more.

They appeal for help to find those responsible for the violence against the unnamed British family and the damage it has done to local tourism.

Anyone one who has information or who may have witnessed the incident is urged to contact officers at Hua Hin police station.

Edit to add - Thaivisa has not received any further information on the condition of the victims.

UPDATE #1 - April 28

Thaivisa understands that police now have 6 men in custody over the attack.

The Daily Mirror, which has now covered the story along with numerous other British news sites, features a report from a man who claimed to have witnessed the incident and came to the defence of the 65 year old female victim.

The Mirror also reports that three victims are still in hospital and will require cosmetic dental work following the attack.

A spokeswoman for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) said: "Our staff have been in contact with the family to offer assistance and will remain in contact with the local authorities."

Jesus - that was absolutely disgusting. What on Earth is wrong with those guys? Kicking a woman in the face when she is on the ground. They are animals.

This should go viral as an example of the Thai capacity for senseless violence.

Smashing up an older woman like that.

Despicable.

All potential tourists should see this and draw their own conclusions.

Notice how nobody tries to intervene and that the tourists are passive when the first blows are struck.

They don't even try to fight back, presumably because they don't realise they are within violence until they are already on the floor.

This is very bad but not as bad as the rest of the bad stuff that is increasingly happening here.

What did they do wrong ??

Point their shoes, fail to buy or just exhibit not enough "thainess"

Make this senseless, cruel violence viral.

This is beyond belief.

Tourists cannot be subjected to such violence this needs to be send all over the entire world to let people around the Planet see how these gutless disgusting animals treat us foreigners.

Time after time we're robbed, humiliated, murdered, aussaulted, raped, conned and still not enough is done to deter these street gangs or crazy ladyboys from these constant attacks. What's next - kill our children ???

I'm sick of this!!!!

Well, after 16 seconds in the Video the Farang hits the Thai man passing, discussion starts and on second 52 the English Lady hits the Thai man in the face.

That are the first hits made in the video.

Even the lady hits the man it is not an excuse for a mob to kick the daylight out of others.

I agree that this violence is absolute not done and the boys need to be tracked down by police and get punished.

But after looking several times I can not agree that the tourist where passive and just passing.
