A heavily drunk and nearly naked British man attacked an elderly Australian tourist with a beer bottle at a Pattaya A-gogo. The 77-year-old victim suffered head injuries and was hospitalized.
The incident was reported to Pattaya Police at 10:30 PM yesterday, May 2nd. The authorities coordinated with Sawang Boriboon rescue workers and rushed to the incident scene at the Tahitian Queen A-gogo bar on Pattaya Beach Road in the Nongprue sub-district of Banglamung district.
The officers found the suspect of unknown identity at the bar. He had already been subdued by a group of Good Samaritans and bar security after he entered the venue near naked and heavily drunk, and smashed a beer bottle against the head of Mr. Josef S, 77, of Australian nationality, for no apparent reason. The suspect was reported to be from the UK, according to police.
Bar patrons and rescuers assisted Mr. Josef with his head wounds before transporting him to a local hospital. The patrons who witnessed the attack told The Pattaya News that the British suspect drank at Tahitian Queen Agogo in the evening prior to the incident.
The suspect left and came back running into the venue, and was near naked and drunk. He also refused to put on clothes that people tried to give him and began attacking others. The man then picked up a beer bottle and smashed it over Mr. Josef’s head.
Pattaya Police detained the man at a police station and are currently attempting to identify him as he had no identification documents with him. The man was described by Pattaya Police as highly uncooperative and continued to threaten law enforcement and others alike.
There are no details about possible forthcoming charges.
