Husband Wife Charged With Attack On Young American Teacher

A husband and wife who stabbed a young American woman in a botched mugging last month have been arrested and charged, according to the TNA website.

22-year-old Brooke Drost from Massachusetts was joined by her mother Danyelle at a police press conference on Tuesday where the husband explained to reporters he stabbed the young teacher outside her apartment on Phaholyothin Soi 8 in the Phaya Thai district of the capital on June 18th because she resisted when he tried to snatch her bag.

The muggers claimed they were desperate and in need of money for a deposit on a new apartment and they had a five month old baby to care for.

During questioning the couple confessed to committing several similar robberies in the area.

Miss Drost was left with a punctured lung after being stabbed twice in the arm and once in the chest with a metal rod her attacker had lifted outside the home of a relative earlier in the night.

The story of the attack on the young American who has been living and working in Bangkok since late 2015 only came to light last week after a gofundme page was setup to bring her mum to Thailand to be at her bedside while she recuperated.

Her attackers now face a lengthy list of charges including assault and robbery
