A foreign tourist was sitting drinking beer and admiring the scenery on Pattaya beach when he was set upon by a gang. They beat him up until he was unconscious stole his property and fled the scene. The police are now urgently seeking the gang to arrest them and bring them to justice to prevent this from happening again.

PATTAYA – November 10, 2013 [PDN], At 3.30 a.m. police from Pattaya city police station and the rescuers of Sawang Boribul Pattaya foundation rushed to inspect the crime scene on the side of Pattaya beach in the area of Bay Walk Residence, Moo 9 Tambon Nong Prue, Amphur Banglamung, Chonburi province. Upon arrival they were informed that a gang had attacked a tourist, robbed him and fled the scene. The victim was a foreign man who maybe Russian aged approximately 30-35 his body was battered and bruised and he was unconscious so he wasn’t able to tell the police what the gang looked like. The police searched the tourist for ID but couldn’t find a wallet but they found a bracelet and a platinum necklace. They then took photos for evidence and the tourist was sent to Pattaya Memorial Hospital for treatment.

From questioning a bystander Mr. Kietchai Pholjan, aged 34 who is a motorbike taxi driver told the police that he saw the 3 culprits driving a red Honda Click but couldn’t remember the license number. The 3 culprits parked up and 2 of them walked over to the male tourist who was sat alone drinking beer, they attacked him knocked him unconscious and robbed him of his property but Mr. Kietchai shouted at the culprits which startled them so they fled the scene leaving the bracelet and necklace behind. The police assumed that the culprits are driving around late at night looking for tourist who are alone and drunk, once they find a victim they attack and rob them. The police are now urgently seeking the offenders to arrest them and prosecute them according to Thai law.

Couple of thoughts.

 

Incidents like these don't make Pattaya seem like the complete heaven some make it out to be. Yes Pattaya is safer than many places around the world, and yes, you can 'blame' the victim for drinking by himself late at night on the beach. But things like these shouldn't happen in the first place. I'm certain we'll read more about these crimes targeting foreigners in the future.

 

Also, nice to see a Thai male citizen involved and assisted the man.

3.30am they came so maybe the incident happened around 2.30-3. What was he doing in the beach road all alone and so late?

Maybe he was an Insomniac? Years of Shift Work Farked up his sleep patterns?

I don't know, but until we have anything that suggests the Guy was at fault, besides being, perhaps, Pissed and Defenceless 

Then we'll have to go with the story, as reported. Wouldn't you say?

 

BTW Who the Fark is Pattaya Daily News?

Do they have Street Cred. or not?

Used to walk home at 5am alone most times in pattaya for three months in 2010.. I will have to cancel that when coming over next time. Too risky.

Would be nice to hear a followup from the victim and later from the police. Do they catch the gang and then what?
