A South Korean suspect has been arrested this weekend after reportedly stabbing a South Korean expat seventeen times in Pattaya last year.
A Korean man, Mr. Park Jinhyung, 28, who had lived in Pattaya for several years and is an accomplished golfer, had sustained serious injuries and was briefly in a coma after suffering seventeen stab wounds in Pattaya last year in October. Mr. Jinhyung had offered a 100,000 baht reward for capturing the suspect as well who had previously been identified by police. He has since recovered from his wounds.
Teams from the Chana Songkram Police in Bangkok and the Nongprue Police in Chonburi led by police Chief Colonel Chitdaecha Songhong have arrested the South Korean suspect, Mr. Keunhui Park, 38, at a bar on Khaosan Road in Phra Nakhon,Bangkok.
Colonel Chitsaecha told The Pattaya News, “The arrest follows a previous arrest warrant from the Pattaya Provincial Court for attempted homicide. The motivation behind this crime was a conflict over a woman.”
Mr. Park has not made a public statement regarding the charges against him at this time and remains in police custody.
