PATTAYA: -- A news video showed the aftermath of a street attack on a 26 year old Indian tourist and his Thai girlfriend in Pattaya on Monday morning.

 

The couple were set upon by three or four Thai men who jumped out of a pick-up truck as they walked back in the area of the Sun City Hotel in Bang Lamung.

 

The couple - Deepankar Dohare who suffered a head wound and bruising and his unnamed girlfriend who was also hurt - said they had no idea what it was all about.

 

Deepankar was pictured with blood on his white shirt after the attack.

 

A security guard at the scene confirmed that the pick-up had been driven at speed onto the footpath and several men got out and attacked the couple. They then sped off into the night.

 

Police are checking CCTV and will re-interview the couple to see if there was in fact a reason for the attack such as an argument over a girl or some personal dispute.

 

But for now the couple were sticking to their story that they had done nothing to cause any trouble, reported Siamchon News.

yet another attack on a Pattaya tourist???!!...oh c'mon...Thailand is safer then Irak, will the trolls say!

 

ok I was never uneasy to travel here and there, but definately, reading on these numerous agressions within the last 48 hours in Pattays -  if I want to drink and screw my head off, I'll rather hop over to another Asian country for 48 hours with Air Asia but definately not to Pattaya any more!!...

 

But on a different note, perhaps it's a subtle way to "clean" up Pattaya by discouraging tourists with their cash, to come over?

Thailand used to be a friendly and great place to visit, but the last 5 years or so it has gone downhill fast. You get the feeling,when traveling in Thailand now,that the people are more aggressive in every way. The smile that was Thailands trademark,no longer reaches the eyes,now it's just a grimace. Greed and envy is destroying the country,sadly....

My wife and I were in Vientiane one night and the local bad boys started spitting and snarling as we walked past.  We hadn't even looked at these miscreants so absolutely no motive was provided for the reaction to our presence.

 

Every bone in my body urged me to smash their faces in. 

 

I saw sense and walked on by [still would have loved to floored and kicked the main protagonist in the face].  In the UK I would have had no hesitation.  I hope karma came back and got them on another day.

I am surprised this happened in Vientiane (capital of Laos), I lived there for over a year back in 2000, and I find the people there very humble and nice , never looking for a fight . I opened a cafe there with my Laos girl friend.
