Burmese Gas Station Worker in Chonburi Slashed with Knife for Allegedly Causing a Nuisance While Drunk

Chonburi —

An unidentified suspect slashed a Burmese gas station worker and put him into a hospital yesterday morning, March 13th. The injured workers’ colleagues stated the culprit might have been peeved at the victim for causing a nuisance while intoxicated.

Sawang Boriboon rescue workers and Mueang Police rushed to a gas station in Chonburi’s Mueang district after they were alerted to a serious physical assualt around 7 AM. They found a gas station worker of Burmese nationality, Mr. Myaung Paing, lying in a pool of blood at the gas pump.

Myaung of unknown age sustained a gaping gash on his right leg and was in serious state. The rescuers tried to stop the blood before rushing the Burmese man to Chonburi Hospital.

According to the man’s colleagues who talked to the police, Myaung had been slashed in the leg by an unidentified knife-wielding suspect. His co-workers said the victim often caused a nuisance after drinking too much and might have angered someone.

The police are reviewing CCTV cameras of the gas station to track down the irritated suspect.

It was unclear why the employee was apparently intoxicated at his place of work, TPN media notes.
