A 32 year old Burmese man was brutally beaten by a group of unidentified men in the Nongprue area this morning around 1:00 AM.
The incident took place near the Department of Land in Nongprue.
The man, who was named by Nongprue Police only as Mr. Aree, had been beaten with a belt with iron buckles and suffered several injuries including to his left eye.
A friend of Mr. Aree’s, who did not give his name to reporters, stated that they had been drinking Ya Dong in a group of about four men. Two other men became involved in an argument with Mr. Aree and attacked him, fleeing after the incident. The belt supposedly used in the attack was found nearby.
