A national park officer stated to Banglamung police that he was attacked by a group of teenagers last night for no apparent reason, suffering head injuries.
The Huay Yai Police was notified of the incident at 10:30 PM at a house in Baan Phuthai.
Police, emergency responders and The Pattaya News arrived at the scene to find Mr. Phonsuwan Arunsri, a staffer of Khao Laem Ya – Mu Koh Samet. He was bleeding from head injuries. He was taken to the Banglamung Hospital after a brief statement to police.
Phonsuwan’s relatives told Banglamung police that they were chattering in front of the house. A group of teenagers who were drinking nearby allegedly used a hammer to hit Mr. Phonsuwan before running away. The relatives and Phonsuwan claim the attack was for no reason.
