Japanese Tourist Beaten Unconscious in Pattaya..
Pattaya One News reports that on the night of October 9th a thirty-six-year old Japanese national was beaten unconscious on Petchtrakul Road in Pattaya, by a Thai man.
Pattaya police arrested a suspect the next day and charged him with suspicion of assault. The suspect claims he had been chatting to his girlfriend, using the Line app, when the victim, who was drunk, grabbed his phone from him. He says he asked for it back and then told the victim to ‘go to bed.’
He said that as he walked away the victim became aggressive and punched him twice in the face, which made him angry. He said that he pushed the Japanese tourist away and he accidentally fell to the ground. So, he said, he ‘kicked him twice in the face and ran away.’
