Pattaya – knife attack leaves American seriously injured

Via: Pattaya One


Late on Wednesday Night a 52 year old American cyclist was left with serious flesh wounds after he was subjected to a frenzied knife (a butcher knife? yeah maybe) attack by a motorcyclist following a minor road accident involving the pair in Central Pattaya.

The incident occurred in Soi Xzyte off Pattaya Third Road, just after 10.30pm where Khun Prasit aged 29 works as a part-time masseur, when he is not at his full-time job as a butcher. Mr. Daniel O’Neill from America was reportedly on his bicycle and was struck by Khun Prasit who was conducting a U-turn maneuver so he could drive home after finishing his shift at the massage shop.

His motorbike came into contact with Mr. O’Neill’s bicycle and although no significant damage was caused to the bike or Mr. O’Neill, angry words were exchanges which enraged Khun Prasi. He produced a knife and attacked the American who was left with a number of slash wounds causing a significant loss of blood.

Mr. O’Neill was sent to Banglamung Hospital while Khun Prasit, who was accompanied by his Wife, later handed himself into Pattaya Police Station where he allegedly confessed to the attack.

Khun Prasit was charged with assault and awaits further legal procedures while Mr. O’Neill remains in Hospital for now as he recuperates following the violent attack.


Personal thought:

Even if you are right, as Mr. ONeill was clearly was, don’t get into an argument with a Thai.

Q: why?

A: There’s a good chance he might be armed with a knife or gun.

Q: What if KNOW he doesn’t have a knife or gun?

A: Because there is a good chance 6-8 Thais around who will join the argument; and you are libel to have the krap kicked out of you.
