Tourist Attacks Woman With PVC Pipe On Lower Sukhumvit

A 27-year-old Thai woman claims she was attacked and hit on the head with a PVC pipe by a crazed “tourist” on lower Sukhumvit yesterday morning.

The office worker shared a post with JS100 saying her attacker started screaming at her then hit her over the head with the plastic pipe close to Sukhumvit 7/1 on Wednesday morning at around 8am.

The victim said her attacker couldn’t speak Thai and was well dressed so she must have been a tourist.

However, two motorbike taxi drivers who stepped in to stop the assault said the crazed woman started screaming saying she had to attack first before being attacked, which they somehow managed to easily understand.

When threatened with police, the woman broke free and walked away, stopping in the middle of the road to stare at the woman and two motorbike men before wandering off.

The unnamed woman described her attacker to police as around 35-years-old, well-dressed and clean. Eyewitnesses told officers from Lumpini police station they had never seen the woman in the area before.

UPDATED 22 Feb 4pm Lumpini police arrested a Thai woman with mental health problems on Sukhumvit Soi 3 and charged her with assault.

The 29-year-old woman, a native of Kanchanaburi, was fined 500 baht and released into the care of her family who were advised to take her for a psychiatric evaluation.

All Quiet As Movie Goers Swerve Strict Cinema Reopening Rules

Cinemas across the capital were almost empty on Monday on their first day open following the relaxation of rules that shut them down back in March in a bid to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Moviegoers obviously didn’t fancy watching old flicks, sitting in the theatre for two hours wearing a mask, and not being able to eat some popcorn while watching the film, so instead, they stayed away.

Couples can sit together with at least 3 seats between them and others in the theatre with nobody allowed to sit in front or behind each other.
