Mueang Chonburi-

A 20-year-old man sustained serious injuries from a stab wound after reportedly trying to attack a teenage security guard at a housing estate in Mueang Chonburi district.

The Samet Police was notified of the accident in front of a housing estate in the Samet sub-district over the past weekend.

Police and emergency responders arrived at the scene to find the injured young man, named Mr. Jack, 20. He had sustained injuries from a stab wound to his stomach and was bleeding heavily. He was rushed to a local hospital for assistance. Meanwhile, the suspect, Mr. Kajon Srisopa, had fled the scene prior to the arrival of law enforcement, according to witnesses.

Mr. Teerawut Kantawong, a food delivery driver who witnessed the incident told Samet police, “I heard the sounds of fighting which drew my attention and I saw the victim (Jack) running to me crying for help, bleeding heavily. I called the police and medical services and helped the victim until they arrived. I did not see the suspect clearly, who fled immediately on a motorbike.”

The housing estate female security guard Ms. Yupin Somattra told the associated Thai press, “Two young men on a motorbike, including Mr. Jack, stopped at my security box. They wanted to meet another security guard, Mr. Jetssada Srisopa, but he was not working today.”

“Jetssada’s twin brother, Mr. Kajon Srisopa, was however working. The two young men attacked him instead even though they knew he was not the person they were looking for. Mr. Kajon fought back and stabbed one of the young men (Mr. Jack) before he sped away. The other young man with Jack also fled the scene.” Yupin stated.
