Japanese Expat Stabbed In Ekkamai Robbery

A Japanese expat was left with multiple stab wounds after he resisted a late-night robbery attempt as he made his way home in the early hours of Saturday.

The 37-year-old was walking along Ekkamai Soi 10/6 at around 1.30am when he was approached by two men on a motorbike who tried to steal his bag.

The unnamed expat resisted and was stabbed in the arm, shoulder and head. He had 20,000 baht plus an ATM card stolen his bag before the two men made their getaway.

Police spokesman Krissana Pattanacharoe told Thai reporters officers were checking CCTV from the area in a bid to identify the men responsible for the attack and robbery, adding there would be swift justice.
