Intoxicated British tourist allegedly robbed and beaten by four Thai men near North Pattaya Beach Road


A British tourist found in only underwear near North Pattaya Beach Road claimed that he was robbed and beaten by four men after drinking heavily with a woman he met two days ago.

The incident occurred at noon on July 6th. Officers and an interpreter from the Pattaya Police Station met with the 29-year-old victim Mr. Farnie (last name withheld due to his privacy), who sat on a footpath near North Pattaya Beach Road in boxers, looking bewildered and terrified and still recovering from intoxication.

According to the Pattaya News reporters, the victim was dressed in his underwear and suffered several bruises around his body. Via an interpreter, he explained his grievance that he got robbed and stomped by four men after getting drunk with a Thai woman he met two days prior. It was unclear, however, exactly why the men attacked him. The victim claimed he did nothing to offend the men or warrant the attack.

The suspects took his phone, backpack, and money before fleeing while he fell unconscious. The victim said he had no inkling of how he ended up on a footpath in North Pattaya, according to the Pattaya News reporters.

Mr. Farnie admitted that he knew the woman only two days ago, according to The Pattaya News reporters. He claimed she worked in a bar in Soi Chaloem Phrakiat 25.

The victim was then hospitalized at the Banglamung Hospital. He filed a report against his assailants and the woman today, July 7th, while police promised him to capture the suspects as soon as possible as the incident was a disgrace to what they called the outstanding family friendly image of Pattaya.
