Thai man attacks pal with knife over pawned mobile phone dispute in East Thailand

The quiet neighborhood of Sri Racha was shaken when a resident took drastic action after a supposed denial of access to his cell phone. A man yesterday reportedly launched a severe assault on his good friend with a knife after he refused to give him a pawned cell phone.
The violent episode unfolded at Pruksachat Villa 2 Village, a peaceable neighbourhood in Sri Racha, located in Chon Buri. Promptly alerted by distressed locals, a rescue group led by medical personnel hastily mobilised in direction of the alarming scene, where they feared encountering critical accidents.
Upon arrival, these fears were realised. They discovered a forty five yr old man, Thongchai Phitaksin, in dire need of medical consideration. Thongchai sustained two grievous knife wounds, one to his head, and one other to his back. Meanwhile, the village was rife with eyewitnesses that converged on the police, urgently providing them with the id of the suspect, 39 year previous native man Nopporn Tamarit, reported The Pattaya News.
Nopporn, a supposed close good friend of Thongchai, was apprehended not too removed from the crime scene, appearing on the insightful data from the eyewitnesses. Elusive was less than tranquil.
Nopporn was reportedly belligerent, wielding a long knife in a wild trend as he aimed to resist the police. Faced with this escalating menace, officers expertly deployed a Taser gun to deliver Nopporn’s violent spree to a halt.
Suwinnai Budwat, a relative of Nopporn, offered some context to the shocking incident. Nopporn’s rampage was apparently triggered by the refusal of Thongchai to return a cell phone. Nopporn beforehand pawned his mobile phone to Thongchai in trade for 600 baht (US$18). When he had gone to request the return of his cellphone, Thongchai allegedly refused, main Nopporn right into a state of frustration that culminated in the assault..
