Bang Saen —

A public brawl on Bang Saen Beach that involved around 20 teenagers terrified tourists Thursday night, March 30th.

Local media reported that two groups of more than 20 teenage boys were involved in a violent fight at a crowded tourist spot on Bang Saen Beach in the Saen Suk area around midnight Thursday night/Friday morning.

Both groups used kitchen utensils and wooden sticks that they grabbed from nearby shops to attack each other while shouting and cursing. This caused panic among tourists who subsequently fled the area out of fear for their safety, and some even recorded video clips of the incident.

Local reporters went to the scene yesterday morning, March 31st, to investigate the incident and met with Ek, a Thai shopkeeper who was present during the fight.

He explained that two groups of teenagers on motorcycles met and started taunting each other. ฺฺBoth sides then used various items from nearby shops as weapons, including a crowbar, causing damage to many shops near the beach.

Ek stated that this kind of incident happened frequently and it seemed that they had no fear of the law.

Meanwhile, Saensuk police are reportedly investigating the incident.
