SARABURI: -- A female Thai farmer fought back as a man tried to rape her at her house in Saraburi on Wednesday evening.

 

In a fight that started with sticks she eventually defended herself with a knife and killed her attacker, reports Daily News.

 

Saraburi police called to a house on stilts in the Chalerm Prakiat district found 50 year old Sawat Bunthan, a stonemason, dead from three stab wounds to the chest. He was lying under the house of 46 year old farmer Miss Sangworn Phukhiaw.

 

She was referred to as an attractive single woman farmer in the Daily News story of the crime.

 

She had been taken to hospital with extensive injuries before police arrived.

 

Police were told that Sawat had been drinking beer with friends on Wednesday evening. He had wanted to have sex with Sangworn for some time but she had always rejected his advances because he already had a family of his own.

 

When he was drunk he saw her in a field attending to a pump and tried to grab her. She ran off home and he chased her.

 

When they reached the lady's house a fight with sticks ensued outside.

 

Police understand that the lady then picked up a knife to defend herself and she stabbed the victim.

 

Cops will be interviewing the lady and other witnesses again before deciding how to deal with the matter.

If this is a true story, which I doubt, he'll never try to rape another women ever again...

and I hope that this brave woman will  be exonerated....

 

The man is dead, it would be very hard for him to try again don't you think?

I've been  very afraid for my Uni student niece who is being harassed by a motorbike taxi guy in Bkk.

Like the farmer lady in this article she is also described as    " an attractive single woman " .  Very much so,  and she avoids him..

Thinking about suggesting she carry a knife.

Wait and see the outcome of this case.

I somehow knew the word  "scum - - - "  would crop up when I read this story. 

   This is a word I rarely ever heard used before coming Thailand (I come from Western Europe). It appears to me it is used by peoples from one particular nation on a regular basis.

    At home, if a person used this word, most people within earshot would physically cringe with disgust. When I see it written down it appears even worse. ......I can assure readers that I am no "shrinking violet"...and have been pulled up on more than one occasion myself for using the "F" word. But the word I'm referring to, for me, is in a completely different category. It''s on a par with calling a lady by the "C" word.

    For me, it says more about the person using it ....than it does about the person it is aimed at.

Welcome to the rest of the English speaking world where scum means the rubbish that floats to the top of the cesspit of life. 

If your non-English country has different connotations of the word scum then please be relieved that there are NO comparisons with other foul words you mention.  You are mistaken.  

BTW;- I heard that the the company that made Vicks vapour rub had to remove their advertising in Germany a long time ago.   No need to go into details.   That was an unfortunate bi-lingual co-incidence of word usage.  

So unless there is a similar co-incidence of word meaning in your language, perhaps your country could change the error?

but I do feel for your country's situation.

“She was referred to as an attractive single woman farmer in the Daily News story of the crime.

 

As though being attractive had anything to do with the rapist's motive. Rapists will use any excuse to violate their victims. Whether it's the type of shoes worn, color of their hair, height, etc. 

 

The press should stop offering excuses as to why someone is raped and just stick to the point that a person was violated without her/his consent. It is a crime with no rationale or justification. Period.
