Two Thai men arrested for violent Pattaya street attack on tourists

PATTAYA: -- Pattaya police have arrested two Thai men for a violent street attack on two tourists.

 

A Swedish man was kicked unconscious after he came to the aid of a Japanese man who was being set upon.

 

Both Thais are claimed to have a previous conviction for attack on a British tourist last year.

 

They denied it - blaming the tourists for attacking them - but police don't believe it.

 

The attack happened last night in Soi LK Metro in Pattaya. 

 

Tareyuki Kamiyama was attacked in the street suffering injuries to his face and a ripped mouth.

 

A Swedish tourist named only as Stefan ran to his aid and was subsequently kicked unconscious by two thugs. Some 5000 baht was stolen in the attack.

 

Police said the assailants ripped off their own shirts and fled with a Thai woman.

 

Two arrests were made later. Patana "Jack" Meunsaeng and Patiphan "Ton" Kla were found drunk. They denied the attack was their doing blaming the tourists for the trouble but police refused to believe them.

 

Reporters understand that both men were convicted of an attack on a British tourist on the 5th of June last year.

Of course everyone who is attacked steals money off their attacker before running away. Still, 5,000 baht is enough for 10 assault fines, so a good day's work.

One wonders why, with 'previous form', they were in a tourist area and not in clink far away...? Maybe now someone in authority with a mild understanding of  jurisprudence or even a shred of common sense will see these lads removed far away from tourist areas for a goodish stretch. 

 

I'm waiting for the 'the victims were drunk and deserved it' gang to roll up....

 

Here's hoping both victims make a full recovery.

Well, that's something we all shall forget about quickly - back to more important things... Where were we? Ah, yes - standardising Thai Food and getting those underlings to wear proper traditional dresses for Pete's sake. I want ORDER!!!!!!!!!

I live on the Darkside, aprox 10 kms from the city centre, I have absolutely no interest in going into town at night, or in the day for that matter, except to go shopping, the place gets more dangerous as the years roll by, rumour has it that a large shopping complex is planned for our side of the railroad tracks, the sooner that happens the better because it means I can avoid Sodom & Gomorrah altogether.

 

We have great bars and restaurants out here, no need to go there at all.

Worrying development if young Thai men are picking on tourists in such a popular area.

Good comment. I can't understand why the local business owners (majority thai) don't come down hard on the thugs who will only be driving the tourists away. Tourists =income. 

Social media is very fast and powerful these days.
