An alleged homeless man hurled a large limb at a masseuse in Pattaya, causing head injuries.
The attack occurred at an unnamed massage parlor on Thappraya Road near View Talay 5 in Chonburi’s Banglamung district yesterday, April 29th, at 8:30 PM. The victim, 33-year-old Ms. Pilaiwan Saenmoo, a masseuse, gave an interview to The Pattaya News and showed CCTV footage of her getting attacked by a mysterious man.
Ms. Pilaiwan said she was sitting with her friends and co-workers in front of her massage parlor when an unidentified man aged about 30-35 years old showed up while brandishing a long tree branch. The man was dressed cleanly, but Ms. Pilaiwan suspected that he might be a vagabond or a drug abuser.
Concerned for their safety, Ms. Pilaiwan and her friends avoided eye contact with the man until he wandered off. However, the man suddenly ran back and hurled the large branch at the group for unknown reasons before fleeing on foot. The projectile hit Ms. Pilaiwan in the head, resulting in her needing seven stitches.
The victim stated that this area was often frequented by homeless individuals. They sometimes slept in front of shops and made other people feel uncomfortable or scared.
Ms. Pilaiwan revealed she had already filed a report with Pattaya Police. The officers are currently searching for the suspect and reviewing CCTV.
